Stars 2008 Draft Review
The Stars won the cup this year so maybe you can excuse such a bad draft by the previous GM.
1st Rounder 30th OV Thomas McCollum
Highly touted goalie and still young. But has had a hard time in the AHL probably not as good as most people expected of him. Floppa best bet is to be a back up with Howard there. Traded for similar bust Greg Neimez
Notable Misses:Markstrom,Ennis,Gardiner Goulbuef though none were first rounders all were close.
Status: AHL starter/potential back up
2nd Rounder 46th OV Danny Kristo
Successful 4 years at college will join the Bulldogs soon. Still a whille off from NHL duty but could become something in a few years. Has since been dealt not sure who to or for what in all honesty.
Notable Misses: Justin Schultz, Matt Calvert
Status: NHL prospect
2nd Rounder 60th Michael Hutchinson
Up and down between ECHL and AHL Rask and the other guy ahead of him. Still with the Stars system but like McCollum not as highly touted as he once was.
Notable Misses: Vyacheslav Voinov, Matt Calvert, Braden Holtby
Status AHL Starter
Overall and awful draft but that can be the price for winning the cup.
Unfortunately Hutch has Khudobin and Svedberg both playing very well - between him and Rask. Never know what another year brings though.
