For all the questions surrounding Tyler Seguin's sudden exit from Boston, Bruins head coach Claude Julien says he certainly didn't request it.

“There was no issue between Tyler and I, and I’m not afraid to say it,” Julien told the Boston Globe. “You guys can ask him at some point. There were no issues there. I worked with him as a hockey player, I dealt with him as a person. There were never any issues that I knew about, anyway. I thought we had a good relationship.”

Julien didn't directly refute reports of Seguin's off-ice activities, but he did downplay reports of his former player's immaturity.
