Seguin won't 'over-respect' Brodeur, Devils
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Bruins rookie Tyler Seguin had an interesting take when asked Thursday how he felt about facing a future Hall of Fame goaltender in Devils' netminder Martin Brodeur. Seguin, 18, noted that though he is a younger player who grew up watching many of the players still in the league, getting anxious to face certain players is not the right way to look at things. 

 

"Every single team is going to have their superstars. I don't really look at that," Seguin said. "Obviously, I'm always going to be a hockey fan, but I'm still here. This is my job now. I'm not going to over-respect too many people with the opposition. If you give people too much respect, they'll take your game right away from you."

 

Seguin was chosen with the second overall pick in June's draft. He scored his first NHL goal in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Coyotes in Prague. For more on the Bruins, visit their team page at...

Taylor has not practiced the last several weeks since injuring his toe in the team's last home game - against the Buffalo Bills on Sept. 26. The team practiced in shorts and shells on the upper practice fields outside Gillette.

Baldinger on D&H: 'The fear factor is gone'

NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger joined Dale & Holley to talk about the Patriots matchup with the Ravens this Sunday and what the loss of Randy Moss will mean to New England's offense. "The thing about Randy, obviously, is his reputation was the deep ball threat," Baldinger said. "It was real. Brandon Tate and Deion Branch and Julian Edelman and Wes Welker, the group that they have there, no one gives them that presence. The fear factor is gone from that offense."

 

"They had a great margin for error. If you want to lay the ball up there and let [Moss] run and go get it, those days are over," Baldinger continued. "They don't have a player like that." Baldinger thinks that the Patriots will go to a ball-control offense without Moss, which will help keep their young defense off the field. "You can keep those guys off the field a little bit, win the time of possession battle," he said....
