    After his team fell just short of a second Stanley Cup championship in three years, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli completed a blockbuster trade with the Dallas Stars to bolster Boston for another run next season.

    The Bruins sent forward Tyler Seguin, center Rich Peverley and defenseman Ryan Button to the Stars for forward Loui Eriksson and prospects Reilly Smith, Matt Fraser and Joe Morrow, both teams announced Thursday.

    With Boston deep at center, the deal brings in one of the game's more underrated wingers in Eriksson, who had to waive his no-trade clause to move to Boston. The 27-year-old Swede had 12 goals in 48 games during the lockout-shortened season and typically can be counted on to push 30 goals and 70 points during a normal year.

    Boston gets one of the better defensive forwards in the game in the form of Eriksson while the Dallas Stars get a prolific player who has potential to lead their squad in points. Boston also acquires a few aspiring prospects along with clearing up some needed cap. Good deal for both teams, however we should analyze this deal in a few years once Seguin and the prospects pan out to their potential to some extent to see who actually won this deal. Dallas will have to imo, make a few more key trades/deals in order to contend for the Stanley Cup while Bostons roster seems promising as ever gearing up for next season.
