Habs Eyes On The Prize Jun 29, 2016

2016 Montreal Canadiens free agency targets: Loui Eriksson could be just what the Habs need

A solid two-way winger, Loui Eriksson may be the missing piece in the Habs' top-six. Since being acquired for Tyler Seguin by the Bruins, Loui Eriksson has been one of their most reliable forwards night in and night out. However, it would appear that the 30 year old Swede will not be back with the Canadiens biggest rival this upcoming season, and is now one of the most sought after UFA targets. Eriksson is a rare breed of forward in today's NHL. He is great on the defensive side of the puck, and limits scoring chances for opposing teams. Within the same role, he also...

2016 NHL Free Agency: Loui Eriksson, a winger regaining his form

Detroit GM Ken Holland has said he plans to look at free agency for improving the Red Wings' forward corps. Loui Eriksson would add offense, so would he be a good signing? Up next in our series on available free agents is the Boston Bruins' Loui Eriksson, a left shooting right winger. Eriksson put up strong numbers with the Dallas Stars from 2008-09 through 2011-12. In 2013, he was traded to the Boston Bruins in the Tyler Seguin trade. His numbers in his first two seasons with the Bruins were lackluster considering he racked up between 63 to 73 points in four straight seasons. His first two...

NHL Free Agency: Should the Stars Bring Back Loui Eriksson?

Should the Dallas Stars bring back Loui Eriksson? Loui Eriksson was sent to the Bruins in that famous July 4th trade involving Joe Morrow and Rich Peverley. Also, Tyler Seguin was sent to Dallas for their troubles. The highlight of the trade was so high in Dallas, many forgot what the Stars actually gave up for Seguin. Everyone would do it again in a heartbeat, but Loui Eriksson was a fan favorite in Dallas for years. And for good reason. Eriksson, who will be 31 in about 3 weeks, played seven season in Dallas. His best year in Dallas was 2010-11 when he scored 27 goals and notched 46...

Dallas Stars 2015-2016 Player Grades: Tyler Seguin

It's hard to find fault with another superb season from #91. Hard, but not impossible. For all of his majesty, Seguin spent the playoffs as a victim of unfortunate circumstance. Before that, he was awesome. The only question is how awesome. Step inside my parlor. Sometimes the when and how of something are just as important as the what. Nowhere is that more evident than in Tyler Seguin's 2015-2016 season. For reasons we will touch on below, it was another banner year, unquestionably a success. However, his great works were blighted by a late season injury, again, leaving Stars fans stuck on...

Dallas Stars 2015-2016 Player Grades: Valeri Nichushkin

Valeri Nichushkin still seems like a rookie to some. You'd be hard pressed to think of a more polarizing figure for the Dallas Stars. When the Dallas Stars drafted Valeri Nichushkin 10th overall in the 2013 NHL Draft, we all thought we were getting Ivan Drago. Three years later, and you're probably hearing fans argue that we got Boris Badenov instead. On the surface, it doesn't look good. His first season here in Dallas, he tallied 14 goals and 20 assists after playing 536 minutes with Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin. 2014-2015 would be lost to hip surgery. This season he tallied 9 goals and...
