  • Seguin was a deal Dallas was able to make because they had stocked up on prospects and picks for so long. They were able to sell part of the farm in Morrow (acquired in a sell deal to Pitts), Smith (drafted/scouted), and Fraser (scouted) along with Eriksson.

The Rangers haven't been in a position where they're stocking up on assets to develop like that in a while. Also the West generally places more emphasis on size, so drafting goes that way too.
These games must be so conflicting for you but I guess you get to see a team you like win either way!
