Found July 04, 2013 on Talk Hockey:
The Boston Bruins have decided to cut ties with young superstar, Tyler Seguin. The former second overall pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft is now property of the Dallas Stars.  The Bruins shipped Seguin to the Stars in a massive seven-player deal. If you are as shocked as I am about the trade here is as good a reason as I could find: according to Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli, Seguin must become more professional to achieve success at the NHL level."He's got to commit his mind and focus on the one task at hand," Chiarelli said. "He'’s got to become more of a professional. And you know what? I can say that about a lot of 21-year-olds. I know he got criticized for playing on the periphery and all that stuff. He did. He's got to commit to being a professional and focusing on the game. He does that, we don't expect him to be crashing and banging. Just play your game."Here is how the trade breaks down:The Bruins sent young star Tyler Seguin, veteran Rich Peverley and defenseman Ryan Button to the Dallas Stars for star forward Loui Eriksson and three prospects -- Joe Morrow, Reilly Smith and Matt Fraser.For the record, if I was part of the Boston Bruins organization I would not have made this trade. The Boston Bruins were a couple wins away from winning their second Stanley Cup in four years. To blow up your organization in this matter makes absolutely no sense to me. This trade reminds me of the time the Philadelphia Flyers got rid of Jeff Carter and Mike Richards. That trade did not exactly work in Philly.Listen.  Loui Eriksson is a tremendously underrated and under appreciated talent who has averaged around 70 points per year in complete NHL seasons.  Eriksson will be every bit the professional the Boston Bruins want.However, now that Tyler Seguin is on the team like the Dallas Stars that will need him to play huge minutes he will emerge as one of the best young players in today's game.  over the past decade there has been less and less high-end NHL draft busts. Now that the Dallas Stars are in a position to make this kid the centerpiece of their franchise. NHL fans far and wide will see the 100 point potential.The Dallas Stars also received Rich Peverley.  "He was a key figure in the Bruins' 2011 championship, joining the club during the 2010-11 season in a trade from the Atlanta Thrashers and then adding 12 points in 25 games during the team's run to the Stanley Cup. Peverley started that run on the third line but moved to the top trio when Nathan Horton was injured during Game 3 of the Final against the Vancouver Canucks."Morrow was a first-round pick by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 2011 NHL Draft. The defenseman was traded to Dallas before the 2013 trade deadline for Stars captain Brendan Morrow.Smith was a third-round pick by the Stars in the 2009 draft. The forward had three goals and nine points in 37 games as a rookie in 2012-13 for Dallas. He was an elite scorer in college, racking up 58 goals and 102 points in his final two seasons at Miami (Ohio).Fraser, 23, signed as an undrafted free agent for the Stars in 2010. He has scored 70 goals in the past two American Hockey League seasons combined, and has one goal and two points in 13 career NHL games.Button, 22, was a third-round pick by the Bruins in 2009. He had no points in 30 games this past season, which he split between the AHL and ECHL.In your opinion, who won this blockbuster NHL trade?Follow @hockeyfanland on twitterPosted by HockeyFanLand.Related:Rumor: Tyler Seguin could be moved by the Boston Bruins
