Dallas Stars v Los Angeles Kings

Jaromir Jagr has been traded to the Boston Bruins, because the Dallas Stars are in sell mode, and the B’s needed a little help up front.

So there you have it.

The Bruins are more or less league average in goals-per-game, which doesn’t exactly cut it when your goal is a Stanley Cup. Though they’ve done it before, they’re one of the few teams with a legit shot at the big prize who don’t have a Crosby/Malkin, Datsyuk/Zetterberg, Kane/Toews, etc. type of threat on their top line. I think Seguin can come close, but Lucic hasn’t been scoring at the rate they need, and Jagr will simply give them another option.

At the very least, it’s an answer to the Penguins’ Iginla move. STOP THE PENS, JAROMIR! (Don’t actually, they’re really fun to watch.)

More reaction when we find out just what the Bruins had to part with to get this done.
