Now I'm very confused by the Jack Campbell pick.
Jimmy Howard didn't become a starter until he was 25. Campbell's only 20 right now, and probably needs 2 full seasons in the AHL. Goalies take a while to develop.

Worst case scenario is Campbell knocks down the door in 2016 or 2017 and forces us to trade Kari for a great return. Not a bad problem to have. What would have been stupid is if the Stars didn't sign their proven goalie for the term he demanded just because they might have a good goalie in 3-4 years ready to take over.
