If any of you missed Tyler Seguin posting messages he got from a gay secret admirer on Twitter this past weekend, and then quickly deleting it, I did a post about it on PuckBuddys.

What do you think about what he did?

I don't think what he did was really "wrong", he didn't say anything negative when he posted it just a simple "I don't know what to say". If he had gone and said something derogatory, then I would have seen an issue with it. And at least he realized he'd outed the guys full name (which is what I feel happened) and deleted it.

And never say all people who live in Massachusetts are ***holes when you live in Massachusetts.

I think it sucks.
I understand being confused by the feelings associated with that kind of unwanted attention, but posting the words and identity is at the very least insensitive and unthoughtful. Given that there are people out there who specifically hate people on the basis of their sexual preference, he didn't really have to say anything derogatory for it to have been wrong. What I think, however, is that he recognized it was wrong, and therefore deleted it quickly thereafter.
I'd be willing to bet that if he had it to do all over again he wouldn't post it. Of course, I'd be willing to bet that the secret admirer wouldn't do it all again, either. If it were a girl that Tyler had found attractive, we'd never had heard about any of this, and would have tried to hook up with here by now.

Miller is not on our list. It's Lack as our #1. There is no reason we would have traded both Schnieder and Luongo if we never intended to give Lack the #1 starting job.  Furthermore, the salary and term Miller is looking for is not in our favor.

I don't think he did anything wrong in the end. He realized it wasn't a good idea and took the message down right away. Unfortunately for him nothing can be deleted from the internet.

It's insensitive to make that public but the guy that wrote to him must have known he was taking a risk.

Guy writing to him should have thought twice about sending the messages. I don't see anything wrong with what Seguin did.

I think it was more to due with him posting it, then quickly rethinking about how some people may find that it appeared to be like he was saying something negative (which I don't think he was trying to do), and deciding to just delete it to avoid any possible backlash.

Seguin also could have just been surprised at the fact that the guy said he thought he was gay.

It appears to be a Facebook page, but, I'm not sure where on Facebook. If it was Tyler's personal FB page, the guy would need to be a friend to send him private messages. I can't imagine Paul would have posted those messages on a public fan page on FB.

Does anyone else think someone was trolling hard on Seguin?

All the guy really wants to know is whether he's gay or not. Probably someone from TMZ....

I thought this was a story about that even if the Leafs drafted him, he would have demanded a trade. :P

Troll is a STRONG possibility. The guy seemed a little obsessive and creepy. Strong possibility that it was someone playing a prank on him.
