NHL News

Seguin to Stars, Eriksson to Bruins in blockbuster, seven-player trade | Puck Daddy - Yahoo! Sports
I'd argue and say that the Stars won this trade but only because of Peverley. Seguin is good but not good enough - at least not right now - to be of equal value to Eriksson. Peverley makes this a great deal for the Stars.

NHL unrestricted free agency is a 'different ballgame' this time around - The Hockey News
It's a much different ballgame. The money that some of these players are getting is absolutely ridiculous.
