The Boston Bruins have acquired Dallas Stars right-winger and future Hall of Famer Jaromir Jagr, according to Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News.

TSN's Bob McKenzie reported the names of the two prospects involved in this trade.

According to TSN's Pierre LeBrun, the draft pick going to Dallas is a conditional selection.

This is a significant trade for the Bruins, one that makes them a better and deeper offensive team. After losing out on the Jarome Iginla sweepstakes to the Pittsburgh Penguins last week, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli needed to find a goal scorer in the trade market to improve his team's struggling offense.

Jagr was the best rental available ,and making this move was well worth the risk when you consider the fact that MacDermid and Payne are not two of the Bruins' top 10 prospects.

Let's examine why Jagr improves the Bruins' chances of winning the Stanley Cup this season.
