While the good people of Boston were celebrating the Fourth of July, their beloved Bruins were pulling off a blockbuster trade with the Dallas Stars, which in part came down to this — Boston decided it was time to move on from Tyler Seguin after a 2013 postseason to forget.
When the Bruins drafted Seguin with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2010 NHL draft, he was projected to be the forward of the future for Boston.
And for a while it looked as if that train of thought was correct, as Seguin helped Boston win the Stanley Cup during his rookie season and then went on to post 29 goals and 38 assists to avoid a sophomore slump. His performance during those two seasons earned him a six-year contract extension worth $5.75 million a year. He was even productive — if inconsistent — during the lockout-shortened 2013 regular season
But the 2013 playoffs were a different story. Seguin didn’t look like the 21-year-old star Boston fans fell in love with as he struggled to find the back of the net...

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 [...]
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. [...]
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...
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...
According to Darren Dreger of TSN, the Bruins and Stars are close to a deal sending Tyler Seguin to Dallas for Loui Eriksson.
The 21-year-old Seguin recently got publicly called out by Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli. Chiarelli said that Seguin needed to learn how “to be a better pro”. Off ice issues appear to have damaged Seguin’s standing with the team. It’s also...
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...
So much for taking it easy on the Fourth of July.
While most Bostonians were lounging by the beach or hanging out at a cookout with a cold one, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli and Co. were busy engineering the biggest blockbuster trade of the NHL offseason thus far.
That deal sent Tyler Seguin, once considered the key to the B’s future, and third-line grinder Rich Peverley to...

Tyler Seguin is no longer a Boston Bruin.
The team announced Thursday that the 21-year-old winger, along with fellow forward Rich Peverley and Providence defenseman Ryan Button, has been traded to the Dallas Stars in exchange for Loui Eriksson and three prospects.

Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarellie reached an agreement on a blockbuster trade with the Dallas Stars on Thursday. After falling just short of a second Stanley Cup championship in three years, Chiarellie decided to clear cap space and bring in one of the game’s more
The blockbuster trade is complete. Loui Eriksson, Matt Fraser, Reilly Smith and Joe Morrow are going to the Bruins for a return of Tyler Seguin, Rich Peverley and low-end defensive prospect Ryan Button.
As tough as it is to see Loui go, this is a fantastic trade for the Stars. They get a young, talented-as-hell center and will be able to move Jamie Benn back to the wing. Seguin...
Less than a week after Peter Chiarelli called out Tyler Seguin for not being professional enough, the Bruins have traded Seguin along with Rich Peverley and Ryan Button to the Dallas Stars in return for Loui Eriksson and three prospects.
