I can tell you all day long that the Buffalo "re-build" is a one-and-done opportunity. Or, I can show you.
At supper time on Thursday, Jim Nill and the Lindy Ruff re-built their Dallas Stars club by acquiring three top flight centers in a seven player deal, in a twelve hour period of time.
They first dealt winger Loui Eriksson to Boston in exchange for center Tyler Seguin and Rich Pever...

AROUND THE WEB
Entering the NHL draft this past week, the Dallas Stars were still lacking depth at center. After the draft, they were still lacking depth at center. The Stars’ only pick with significant experience at center was Jason Dickinson (29th overall), who also is listed as a left wing. This led to the idea that they will make up for their lack of depth via free agency.
PARTY IN THE USA
Tyler Seguin was traded by the Boston Bruins on Thursday, reportedly because the team was unhappy with his partying ways. In a wonderfully ironic twist, the youngster just so happened to throw a party the day he was traded. Numerous people tweeted about being at Seguin’s house on the Cape for a July 4 party [...]
It took one week for Jim Nill to put his stamp on the team. One week for him to completely overhaul the organization and bring some real excitement to the team. Stars fans are well aware of the two trades yesterday, so I won’t go into the details too much here.
Some thoughts on what Dallas lost first. It’s going to be tough not having Loui Eriksson around here next year....
Tyler Seguin may be on his way out of Boston.
With just eight points during the Bruins’ playoff run, it’s no secret that Seguin’s production was a disappointment. After the run, general manager Peter Chiarelli said the 21-year-old had to “become more of a professional,” as it was revealed Seguin’s name came up in deadline trade talks.
Now according to multiple reports...
At the NHL Draft on Sunday, Dallas Stars general manager make a "swing for the fences" decision when Dallas selected Russian prospect Valeri Nichushkin with the 10th overall pick of the first round. In so doing, he opted for maximum upside over potentially safer options.
Turns out Nill was just getting started. Earlier today, the Stars completed a blockbuster trade with...
On Independence Day, the Bruins made a blockbuster trade with the Dallas Stars, sending Tyler Seguin, Rich Peverley, and minor league defenseman Ryan Button to the Stars in exchange for Loui Eriksson, Joe Morrow, and two forward prospects in Reilly Smith and Matt Fraser.
The trade comes after almost a week of rumors and speculation surrounding the young forward. The...

Shortly after the Dallas Stars completed a blockbuster deal with Boston yesterday to acquire Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley, the club made another trade. Dallas sent defenseman Philip Larsen and a 2016 seventh-round pick to Edmonton in exchange for the Oilers' captain, veteran forward Shawn Horcoff.
Larsen is coming off a disappointing year in the lockout-shortened 2013 season...
The Boston Bruins need look no further than Tyler Seguin’s statistics in the 2013 NHL playoffs if they want to justify trading him to the Dallas Stars. Seguin scored only one goal and tallied seven assists in 22 postseason games. That brought his total to six goals in 42 career playoff games with the team. [...]
Nashville added another piece to the puzzle as well, signing veteran Eric Nystrom to a 4 year, $10 million deal, marking the fifth player the Predators have picked up in the first day of free agency.
Nystrom, 30, scored 11 points last season for the Dallas Stars and has 83 points in 408 career games in the NHL. Nystrom is another depth forward, but is great on the ice during the...
New Dallas GM, Jim Nill, and former Sabres head coach, Lindy Ruff, are wasting little time putting Dallas back on the NHL hockey map.
The two Albertans just collaborated on a great entry draft that saw the Stars land Russian bomber Valery Nichuskin with their first round draft choice. They also used the 29th overall pick to haul in Jason Dickinson.

The Boston Bruins were an opposing general manager âyesâ away from trading Tyler Seguin (and Rich Peverley as well) for cap relief and/or a warranted shake-up last weekend.
But when top-line winger Nathan Horton said âsee yaâ to the Black-and-Gold for the quieter pastures of (insert different NHL team here), it seemed as if the playoffsâ underachievers...
Huge trade in the works. Boston and Dallas close on a deal sending Tyler Seguin to Stars for Loui Eriksson. Other parts involved as well.

The Dallas Stars have found Kari Lehtonen’s backup, signing left-handed catching goaltender Dan Ellis to a two-year contract worth $1.8 million. Ellis was originally drafted by the Stars, back in the second round of the 2000 NHL Entry Draft, 60th overall. The 33-year-old from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan is listed at 6’1″, 191 lbs, and in 19 games with the Carolina Hurricanes [...]
The Nashville Predators continue to stock up on team depth today as they sign forward Eric Nystrom to a four year contract today. The deal is worth ten million over the lift of the contract (2.5M per year). Nystrom is a good third line winger and will add a lot of crashing and banging in Music City. He’s capable of [...]
