Bruins just lost faith in Tyler Seguin

Boston and Dallas partnered in some risky business Thursday, with the Bruins dealing away a potential superstar in Tyler Seguin, and the Stars shipping out a known, prime-aged, proven scorer in right wing Loui Eriksson.

Whose risk is greater? No doubt that falls to Boston, because Seguin is only 21, is among the game’s fastest skaters, and really never was given the opportunity to prove himself at center, his natural position, which was how he projected in the NHL when the Bruins made him the No. 2 overall pick in the 2010 draft.
