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

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
