Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli tried to move young scorer Tyler Seguin at the NHL for one of the top picks.That didn’t work, but he kept plugging away. TSN's Darren Dreger reports that he is close to a deal that would send Seguin to the Dallas Stars for talented winger Loui Eriksson.
Now that would be a blockbuster.The Stars want to play Jamie Benn on the wing, so that team has been shopping aggressively for a center. Seguin will fill that need. Boston developed reservations about paying Seguin for the long haul after his sporadic efforts during the playoffs. The Bruins would get out from under that deal and land a word-class talent in the process.
