    Day 9 – Dallas Stars

    The Stars are a bit of an enigma in terms of their drafting, prospect development and direction for the future. They have some very good prospects down the pipeline and General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk has brought them a direction and solid picks, but few superstars have emerged from his picks. That must have alarmed ownership enough to bring in Bob Gainey as a special advisor. Who has the sway, and is there too many chefs in the kitchen now. Nobody really knows what direction they will go, but we do know there are 5-6 guys in their system right now that should step up and be key players for the club in the future. Hulking defenceman Jamie Oleksiak leads the way for the stars with his 6’7” 240 lbs. frame and Tyler Myers-like combination of skating, size and skill. Big game goaltender Jack Campbell could be a future NHL superstar, and wingers Alex Chiasson, Scott Glennie and Reilly Smith should be solid offensive contributors for the Stars in the next few years. A decision on the direction of the franchise needs to be made and prospects acquired to fit in with that style in order for the club to see a future resurgence.

    G - Jack Campbell (USA) Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds

    6’3” 184 lbs. 20 years

    Captain America is still a bit of an enigma, but there’s no doubting his potential to be a franchise goaltender in the NHL. Based on his size, exceptional fundamentals and ability to steal a game, especially when on a big stage, he has Ryan Miller written all over him. However, he will need to work on his cardio and conditioning to last through a full season, because of his athletic and often spectacular no hold barred style of making saves, tends to wear him out over the course of the season, where may only look average every now and then. There’s nobody on the ice who’s hungrier and wants to win more than Campbell and it was a good learning experience for him this past year being traded from a good Kitchener team to a weak Sault Ste. Marie team, where he got a taste of what it’s like to be on a losing team and learn to cope with it. He’ll probably be in the AHL next season, but I wouldn’t count him out of the race to make the Stars right now. The bigger the stage the better he plays, and that can’t be taught.

    Potential: Franchise goaltender
    Projected Upside: 35 wins (Ryan Miller)
    ETA: 2013-14

    RW - Scott Glennie (CAN) Texas Stars

    6’1” 204 lbs., 21 years

    A lot of people have already written off Glennie since he was the eighth selection in the NHL draft in 2009 and most of the other players in the top 10 are already in the NHL. He came in highly ranked and reaping the benefits of playing alongside Brayden Schenn, but was able to still put up numbers in his draft year when Schenn was in the press box with injuries. Since that point, he’s played on a very poor Brandon Wheat Kings team which was rebuilding, and with the Texas Stars where he put up 26 points in 45 games last season, while battling injuries. A year injury free, and a little confidence should do Glennie wonders and prove to the naysayers he’s still a top six forward who can do a bit of everything on the ice. He’s a strong skater and is very diverse as he can play on the right side up front or at centre, where he’s pretty crafty at taking the draw. There’s no reason not to see him as a Mike Fisher type forward.

    Potential: Top six forward
    Projected Upside: 65 points (Brad Boyes)
    ETA: 2013-14
