Quotable: Lindy Ruff Talks Tyler Seguin, Jamie Benn and Valeri Nichushkin

On Tyler Seguin moving back to the center position

“I think you have to have a little bit of patience. He is moving back to a position that he hasn’t played. He’s going to have to handle some big men down low. Your responsibilities are a lot different from playing the wing to the guy that has to come back and try to out battle some of the big men. The good part is he should have the puck a little bit more. The tougher part is his reads have to be good, you get a lot of defensive situations. I think that is the part that will take him a little bit of time.”

More on being patient with Seguin

“The first thing is you can’t hurt your team in your own end. You’d want to be able to count on him in almost every situation against any top player. He’s a young player. I think the fact that he hasn’t played it on a regular basis, there is going to be a little bit of an adjustment for him. You go through the preseason, give him as much time as you can. He played it all his career up until (playing with Boston). I think it will be an easier adjustment once you get up and running.”

On the transition for Jamie Benn going from center back to wing.
