I'm disappointed that Mark may move on, but the official site has been doing really well this summer with the prospect updates.

Here is what was said about Alex Chiasson:

Quote:
In fact, despite having yet to play an NHL game, Stars Director of Player Personnel Les Jackson has already handed Chiasson a moniker every young hockey player seeks.

“He’s a pro,” Jackson said. “Like (Jack) Campbell, (Patrik) Nemeth, (Brenden) Dillon, he’s got it. You can tell by watching a player whether or not he’s got hockey intelligence. And he’s got it. There’s no question.”
Quote:
“I was impressed with his presence and the detail in his game,” White said. “He’s got a big frame, but he also has great attention to detail, especially defensively on his reads and on the forecheck getting back into his own zone. I really like that a lot. It’s impressive to see that kind of detail from a big guy, plus he’s a very strong man along the wall.”

“His skating has improved,” White said. “He’s come a long way in that regard since we saw him a couple of years ago at BU. That’s the only thing we were concerned about, but he’s so much more fluid now than he was then and he really carries the puck with speed when he gets up and running. He’s also added even more power and strength, so I don’t really see any issues with him moving ahead.”
Quote:
“He could probably play at 220 or so, and he probably will at some point,” Jackson said. “When he’s 24 or 25, he’ll be at full maturity and he’ll be a handful to deal with. He’s got a big body, but right now his mind is more advanced than his body – and that’s not a bad thing. He’s a smart guy who’s got a mind for hockey.”

I agree the article is good, but wasn't that Doug Foster and not Mark writing it though?

I know it wasn't Mark. I was pointing out that the article is very similar to what Mark has done in the past (this off season even), and it makes him potentially moving on not nearly as bad should they continue.

Txomisc, yeah that is awesome. I hope he stays on full time with the team. That would honestly be amazing, but this Foster guy has some potential too. It's not like Mark every did rumors so he could basically do the same thing on the official website that's he's done for ESPN and his own website in the past.

Mark just wrote a lengthy article profiling the job the team's scouts do. I think some people were asking about specific ranges and responsibilities before and this makes some of them clearer.

That's right up there as one of my all time favorite articles. Wow ... that was really great to hear about the scouting process.

^ He's talking about Vance in case you are wondering.

Maybe he wasn't trying/drinking. Was he playing D?

I don't think he'd go pro to score anyways. And as said before, if not sarcasm, I doubt he was trying.

I'd prefer to keep it to a top-20 list to remain consistent with years past. It's great that the system is no longer as pathetic as it once was, but that doesn't mean we have to rank everyone. Interest starts waning after a certain point anyway.

For the purposes of our rankings Larsen, Vincour, and Bachman will all be considered graduated. So that does open up 3 spots.
I don't want to rush you but do you have date in your mind when you will start the top-20 list?
Thank you

Well it will be after Development Camp ends, that's for sure. Don't worry, soon.

NHL.com's 30 Teams, 30 Days: Dallas Stars

NHL.com's Top 10 Prospects for the Dallas Stars are:
  1. Jack Campbell, G
  2. Jamie Oleksiak, D
  3. Brenden Dillon, D
  4. Radek Faksa, C
  5. Scott Glennie, RW
  6. Matt Fraser, RW
  7. Patrik Nemeth, D
  8. Reilly Smith, RW
  9. Alex Chiasson, RW
  10. Brett Ritchie, RW

All of the quotes are from Les Jackson, but they were in previous Mark Stepneski articles on the official site. No need to re-post those.

I believe Fraser is a LW, not sure about Ritchie.

Glennie #5?!

I'll believe that when he finally shows something at the pro level.

well most reports seemed to indicate that he really picked him game up as the year went on and became a very valuable player for the Texas Stars. Hopefully he'll be leading the team as a two way forward this time around.

Article from Mark on the official site about Brett Ritchie:

One quote that stuck out to me was from J.J. McQueen. I think I remember it from a previous article, but I believe it was never posted.

The Stars strength and conditioning coach said Ritchie, of all the prospects, made the most significant gain in size, strength, and quickness.

Stransky was the most improved overall prospect last season according to Les Jackson (and I agree). I think Stransky has it in him to earn that distinction again, but I also believe Ritchie will be his biggest competition. If I was going to list 5 guys who could make the biggest improvements, it would be those two, Scott Glennie, Emil Molin, and Alex Guptill.

With Glennie, I see a bit of similarities between James Neal's development. They both put up impressive junior numbers but never quite dominated their leagues. Both dealt with nagging injuries yearly, including their first year of pros, and both scored close to a point per game in the second half of the rookie pro season in the AHL. Fraser is clearly the lead in the race for a final roster spot in the NHL, but I think he'll have some tough competition with Glennie and Chiasson.

Molin has the benefit of some younger prospects for Brynas moving on to NA. He's already experienced playing some competition against men, and he could finally see some decent ice time in Sweden.

I debated between Guptill and Vance here, but I think Guptill will have a harder time in a tougher league. If he's able to reproduce and actually improve in his sophomore year with Michigan, that would be a huge statement for his development.

Jack Campbell article on the official site:

Quote:
“I don’t have any specific goals this season other than to win a championship with whatever team I play for, whether it’s in Austin winning that Calder Cup or helping the Dallas Stars win a Stanley Cup,” he said. “I am not focused on what team I play for, I just want to prepare the best I can, work as hard as I can and then come into camp and see what happens.”
We already heard he's gained 2" and 15 pounds as he matures physically, but I think this quote is an example of him maturing as well.

Last season in training camp, his goal was to make the AHL rather than go back to the OHL. Everyone knew that wasn't realistic, but it was an admirable goal. I think this new mentality of being the best goaltender possible rather than focusing on where he plays is a positive step.

Hockey is officially back!!!!

At least in Sweden ... thanks so much NHL and NHLPA for the uncertainty of the NHL season!

Might be time to start up the 2012-13 prospect thread. Ludwig Bystrom is playing in a pre-season game today with MODO, and he will be paired with Kyle Cumiskey.

FUN NOTE: Mr. Wasted 1st Round Pick in a Bad Trade/Blast from the Past/Nearly Destroyer of James Neal's eye sight - Ladislav Nagy is playing for MODO this year I noticed according to the line combos.

European Trophy could be interesting for Stars fans this year. Dallas will have 3 prospects in the mix.

Emil Molin - Brynäs IF
Esa Lindell - Jokerit
Henri Kiviaho - KalPa

The first game of the tournament was July 31st, but the Dallas prospects don't get started until August 17th.
