Best of the 2010s: The most memorable Bruins moments of the decade

Obviously, the Bruins' Game 7 victory in Vancouver that clinched their first Stanley Cup since 1972 stands alone as the most memorable moment of the decade, but there have plenty of other highs and a few lows in the past 10 years.

Ex-Bruin Tyler Seguin's home destroyed in Dallas-area tornado

A tornado in the Dallas-Fort Worth area Sunday night caused severe damage to the home of Tyler Seguin, the Dallas Stars forward confirmed early Monday morning.

The tornado completely blew the roof off Seguin's home in North Dallas, according to a photo taken by NBC5's Meredith Land.

Fortunately, the home was unoccupied; Seguin tweeted that he recently put the home up for sale and has moved into a new place.

The 27-year-old was in Philadelphia on Saturday night as the Stars played the Flyers, but returns Monday for Dallas' home game against the Ottawa Senators.

Seguin, the Bruin's No. 2 overall pick in the 2010 NHL Draft, spent his first three seasons in Boston and won a Stanley Cup with the team in 2011.

The Bruins traded him to the Stars in 2013 and he's thrived ever since, appearing in four consecutive NHL All-Star Games from 2015 to 2018.

Forget a B's reunion; Stars hand huge deal to Seguin

In the on-again, off-again world of the Tyler Seguin contract negotiations with the Dallas Stars, things finally got done this week.

The final numbers were eight years and $9.85 million per season. For all his talent and production over the last handful of years in Dallas, would you give an eight-year, $80 million plus contract to a player like Seguin that’s going to be 27 this season? Boy, I’d be hesitant to do that if I were Jim Nill without knowing what Seguin’s level of commitment to hockey -- and his willingness to pay the price on the ice for team success -- will be with all that money and all that security.

They’ve sunk a ton of money into Seguin and Jamie Benn, two players that most years haven’t even made the playoffs, and now that will be their lot in life for the long term.

They may not have had much of a choice here, but it sure looks like the Stars are going to be stuck in neutral for a while barring some amazing upgrade.
