6. Loui Eriksson
One of the most controversial moves made by Bruins management over the offseason was trading former No. 2 overall pick Tyler Seguin to the Dallas Stars. Seguin was regarded as the Bruins’ best young star, but the team thought it had not seen enough progress from Seguin and decided to go in a different direction.
The most prominent player arriving from Dallas in that trade was winger Loui Eriksson. Eriksson has been compared favorably to Patrice Bergeron in his abilities not only as an offensive forward, but also as a strong defender, a combination that should fit Claude Julien’s system well.
