This past Thursday, the Boston Bruins and the Dallas Stars gave the NHL a “trade of fireworks” involving seven players. The Bruins sent Tyler Seguin, Ryan Button, and Rich Peverley to the Stars, and received Loui Eriksson, Matt Fraser, Joe Morrow and Reilly Smith in return. Although seven players were involved, most of the talk about this trade revolves around Tyler Seguin and Loui Eriksson. The big question is, which team made the better trade? Many commentators and journalists have their opinions, but I would argue that both Boston and Dallas have many reasons to be pleased with this risky trade based on their specific needs.

Despite the fact that Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli feels that Seguin has some growing up to do, I think Dallas has scored big time in acquiring him. Even at his young age of 21, Seguin has played in more NHL games than any other rookie, giving him more experience than most young hockey players. This means that not only will the Stars be acquiring an experienced and skilled forward, but they will also be getting one with his best years ahead of him. Another reason Dallas should be thrilled with this trade is that Seguin will finally be playing center, which is the position that even his now former coach Claude Julien says he should be playing. Although Seguin was successful at right wing with Boston, he will have a much better scoring percentage playing center. This also gives Dallas’s power forward Jamie Benn a chance to play right wing, which he rarely played while Eriksson was on the roster. Not only does Eriksson’s departure give Jamie Benn a chance to play his true position, but it will also give opportunity to players like Alex Chiasson or Brett Ritchie to step up. Photo Credit: AP Photo On the other hand, Boston is getting a lot of talent and experience with winger Loui Eriksson. It is well known that Boston has depth in the center position. By letting Seguin go and making room for someone meant to play the right wing, Erikssson will add a great offensive threat to the Bruins’ starting line with Bergeron and Krejci. Another thing that veteran Eriksson can do that Seguin could not this season, is score. Eriksson has four straight seasons with over 25 goals and he is known for his aggression and commitment on the ice. Eriksson also brings a defensive threat with his knack for penalty killing. As far as salary cap (the reason that most say the Bruins’ were willing to let go of Seguin), Boston’s willingness to let go of Seguin for money concerns is understandable. New star goalie Tuukka Rask is easily the majority of the reason that the Bruins’ made it to the Stanley Cup finals, and Boston’s most important move this off-season is signing their restricted free agent goaltender. Keeping Rask on the roster should give the Bruins’ a lot of assurance going into the 2013-14 season. However, if I had to pick the team who scored the most out of this trade, it would be the Stars. Chiarelli’s main complaint of Seguin was that his playoff stats were not the best and that he needs to mature and focus on his game. To be fair, Chiarelli is right. In his last 40 playoff games, Seguin has a mere 12 points; and, he has often been found out late partying at bars. But, even though Seguin may have some growing up to do both on and off the ice, sending away a former No. 2 overall draft pick and the Bruins leading scorer in the 2011-12 season (67 points), will definitely come back to haunt Boston. I think Chiarelli is forgetting that Seguin is only 21 years old. Although his failure in the postseason is inexcusable, Seguin is bound to improve as the years go on. There is no doubt in my mind that he will get better both with his maturity and with his physical game. Despite the fact that the Bruins mostly let him go because of salary cap, I believe they could have figured out ways to find cap space without giving up a rookie with such potential. Seguin has a long, successful career ahead of him, and I think this trade will leave many Bostonians wondering why their management let him be “the one that got away.” -Barash
