I did not see a thread like this on here already, so I'm making it now.

We finished our draft by selecting 5 skaters, all of whom are forwards.
3 of them are RWs, 1 is a Center, and the other is a LW, while 4 of the 5 have right handed shots.

New GM Joe Nieuwendyk made it a point to get an influx of right handers, because last season the pro team had a major shortage of them.

Here are the picks we made

1st Round - Scott Glennie
2nd Round - Alex Chiasson
3rd Round - Reilly Smith
5th Round - Tomas Vincour
6th Round - Curtis McKenzie

http://www.nhl.com/ice/draftsearch.htm?year=2009&t=DAL

If you are wondering, the first 4 guys are the ones that play right-handed.


I'm excited about Glennie, he seems like a good prospect that has already been compared to Ales Hemsky, Jeff Carter, and even HOFer Mike Gartner![url][/url]

I like Glennie a lot. I think he'll be a David Backes type of player once he gets into the league.

I've heard that comparison as well
I just want him to gradually fill out his frame and polish out his game

here's a good article on Jonas Gustavsson and his upcoming decision on where he will sign.

http://thegoalieguild.com/2009/06/20/a-blind-step-over-the-edge/

It says that Dallas is a very good fit and could be better than Toronto

If the Stars are able to get this guy, I'm ecstatic!

thank you
I've been hearing almost nothing but good things
the only knock on him that I have really heard is his size, which is something he'll definitely work on.

gotta love Mike Heika

I hope we go after boynton, he seems like a type of d-man that we need, especially since he has a nice right handed shot (something we lack).

I hope we keep Morrison tho, he's still a decent scoring option and fit in well with the team during his short stay last season. it helps that his brother-in-law works for the team too Wink

Stars got Karlis Skrastins
good defensive signing to help out Turco and the blue-line.
He blocks a lot of shots and is an iron-man, which is something we lacked last year, evident by the plethora of injuries.

Gustavsson's decision and the fate of Zubov are the significant factors for us this offseason.

Dallas is definitely one of his top two choices, and I do not know of too many people willing to take a risk with Zubov (physically and financially). Let's hope his friend Joe offers him the right deal tho...he'd be a tough loss.

thank you sir.
yahoo sports was also fans of the move, and gave us a decent grade on our offseason thus far.

Quote:
Dallas Stars: Whatever Jere Lehtinen(notes) has left in the tank, the Stars get it for one year as a deep discount ($1.5 million, down from $4.1 million last season). Defenseman Karlis Skrastins(notes) was a solid defensive defenseman for the Panthers last year, and two years at $1.375 million isn't bad. As of Day 3 of the Frenzy, the Stars were still waiting on Sergei Zubov(notes) and whether or not they can sign Swedish goalie Jonas "THE MONSTER" Gustavsson to eventually replace Marty Turco's(notes) five-hole. GRADE: B-

if the team is healthy, I really like our chances to contend. Remember that this is a team that is one year removed from a successful run to the West Finals.

I would like guys like Jamie Benn and Ivan Vishnevski to make the jump to the NHL roster.

well Dallas lost out on Gustavsson, but it was only a one year deal.

Jeff Woywitka is a star by signing a $1.3 million deal for two years.

He's a former 1st round pick that is still relatively young. He came off a solid year with St. Louis, so maybe this is another bargain-find by the new GM in town.

Dallas got Alexander Auld
http://www.andrewsstarspage.com/index.php/ADSPblog/comments/stars_acquire_auld/1808-2008-09
good backup, good contract, good size, and good numbers from a backup goalie
Head Coach Marc Crawford is also familiar with him, as Crawford coached Auld in Vancouver.
