Bruins discussing trade with Stars involving Tyler Seguin, Loui Eriksson, according to report

Harry How

The Boston Bruins have been looking to trade Tyler Seguin, according to rumors. Apparently, the club might have found a willing partner in the Dallas Stars.

UPDATE: The deal appears official now, with details here.

The Boston Bruins and Dallas Stars are working toward a trade that would be centered around Loui Eriksson and Tyler Seguin, according to Darren Dreger of TSN on Thursday afternoon.

It remains unclear how far along negotiations are at this time.

However, rumors about Seguin have been circulating since before the NHL Draft, and general manager Peter Chiarelli stated earlier this week that he believed Seguin needed to become a better professional. In essence, Chiarelli didn't sound too pleased with his young forward.

Eriksson has also been a name rumored as potentially available. Dallas has been active in offseason free agent chatter and was believed to be a favorite to land Vincent Lecavalier. Ultimately, that proved not to be the case. New general manager Jim Nill is evidently ready to make some changes in Dallas. A potential swap of Eriksson for Seguin would certainly achieve that.
