The dirt on Seguin?


No one is happier that the NHL lockout is over than Bruins forward Tyler Seguin. Why? It seems the 20-year-old Seguin, who played with EHC Biel in Switzerland during the lockout, has a hard time living alone. The Swiss tabloid Blick spoke to the company hired to clean up Seguin’s rented apartment, and it wasn’t pretty. “The parquet floor was littered with coins worth 220 francs ($238),” according to Blick, adding that Coca-Cola bottles, garbage, and dirty linen were scattered on the floor and rotten bananas were on a table. The bathroom was a mess, the newspaper said, and Seguin was “not versed in appliances.” What does that mean? He apparently tried to wash his clothes in the dryer and “did not know how to operate the dishwasher. . . . When he ran out of clean plates, glasses and cutlery, he bought plastic tableware.” Seguin didn’t seem terribly upset about the story. Wednesday, the top scorer for the Bruins last season tweeted: “All this house stuff is a bunch of crap. I do my laundry by myself quite often :) maybe I’ve called my mom twice about it #whohasnt.”
