First the captain, then Jagr, Roy traded by Dallas Stars, who are clearly to the future

The Dallas Stars are really rebuilding for the future now.

Dallas on Tuesday traded 41-year Jaromir Jagr to Boston and sent surging centre Derek Roy to Vancouver. That came just more than a week after captain Brenden Morrow was dealt to Pittsburgh.

The latest moves came a day after a 4-0 loss to Anaheim, a team the Stars play twice more this week. Dallas is 12th in the Western Conference with 13 games left, and on track to miss the playoffs for the fifth year in a row.

Dallas got two young prospects and a conditional second-round pick from Boston, and a 23-year-old defenceman and a second-round pick from Vancouver.

The Stars now have nine picks in this summer's six-round draft.

Quote of the Day

This is a great day for me. This is something I've been thinking about for a long time. This is a great opportunity that the St. Louis Blues organization, (owner) Tom Stillman and Doug Armstrong are giving me and trusting me in doing...This is going to be a great challenge for me.
