Vincour has already played in the NHL with some success, and Oil Kings fans of more than a couple years will also be aware of him. Brenden Dillon is a young, highly touted defenseman. Then there's Oleksiak, who is ****ing gigantic. Eakin and Glennie will be great top six centres. Jack Campbell is a great young goalie, although this is his first pro season so it's anyone's guess to see how quickly he adapts.

All in all, it's a really young core. However, seeing as Dallas has had the misfortune of being in that dreadful spot just outside of the playoffs and not yet in the top 10 in draft position for the last three years, they haven't had the pleasure of drafting really high, so there aren't that many guys who are projected to be top line players. Still, a solid bunch that will at the very least provide a stronger challenge to the Barons than last year's team's did (which sucked ass).
Thanks a lot for that, that said even based on what you've said considering what the Barons have added and retained I still see the Barons coming out on top most nights.

It'll be interesting to see how many of these guys are legit prospects and how many are suspects. On paper their team looks jacked though, no doubt about it. If guys like Granlund and Coyle are legit, that will be a very strong team.
