Twitter is abuzz with news that the Bruins are moving Seguin to Dallas for Loui Eriksson in a five player deal.

I have no idea why Boston would consider moving a 21 year old centre who is already nearly a 30 goal, 70 point guy. I like Eriksson, but come on…

I suspect this has personal issues written all over it. I've seen some of Chiarelli's comments regarding Seguin's commitment to being a pro, and suspect that they are not happy with how this kid is trending. Couple that with, perhaps, an underwhelming playoffs this past spring and you may see a trade similar to the Richards/Carter trades - an organization trading a young star player with whom they have issues regarding off-ice habits.

Again, just a suspicion. Otherwise, you're quite right.

...apparently Jim Nill is not afraid of bold moves.

Big trade- seems to adress needs for both clubs.

Hopefully Eye Bags has his chubby paws near the reset button because I still think it needs to be pushed a couple more times.

Ummm...one could argue the reason YOUR BOSTON BRUINS lost the Stanley Cup Championship was the poor playoff performance of the young Tyler Seguin....
I love every move Jim Benning makes 8-)

He needs to mix in a salad with the gallon of red he drinks every night. It's a little fucked when the guy is just sitting in a chair and sweating like a cub scout at the Neverland ranch.

This is a crazy yet BOLD trade by Chiarelli. A young proven offensive centerman picked 2nd overall don't just grow on trees.

Loui Eriksson and Vern Fiddler? Really? He couldn't pry away Jamie Benn instead?

Jim Nill. Respek.
Try to focus on 1 year from now...

I expected Dallas to be very active this off season as they are one of the teams with cap space to do so.

Kessel and Kelly for Erickson, Fiddler, Eakin and Hamilton
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

...seems as if Joe Morrow may be involved in the Star Bruin deal as well.

As an aside Patrick Elias is gonna rake in 16.5 mill for the next 3 years.

Nice to see a huge trade for once! a true Blockbuster.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Unless Nill and Ruff can screw the kid's head on straight, I agree.

Wager this will be a trade that will be talked about a couple years down the road.
