Stars tightened it up in the third. Campbell was terrific. Now this next week is a long break of scoreboard watching and see if any junior guys are brought up.

Fraser is a machine. I can't think of the last pure scoring prospect Dallas had who's production has actually exceeded his hype. Can't wait to see this guy in Dallas next year.

Which current player in the whole league do you think Fraser could potentially be compared to?

Semi-current ... hands down Michael Ryder. The thing that impresses the hell out of me the most though is he's clearly the most dangerous scorer on the ice yet somehow he has a way of always finding open ice. He's not particularly fast or elusive ... it's almost Brett Hull-esque where defenders know they have to cover him, but they constantly lose track of him.

Maybe I'm wrong, but if Dallas' top priority was making the playoffs, there's no way Fraser would be in the AHL. I'm not exactly saying that's a bad thing either.

David Clarkson/Ryder

Fraser is big and he knows when to hit and he'll fight anybody. Forechecks like a mother ****er if asked to, and he's just one of the most elusive players I've ver seen in the AHL. It's not because of speed or super fantastic skating ability. He jsut thinks the game well ahead of everybody around him. He is ALWAYS in the right spot to score, and his shot is pretty fantastic. Add all of that up with his confidence and you have a very high ceiling player. I think with the right center he could easily bag 40G in an NHL season.

Matt Fraser will be Captain/Assistant material for Dallas.

Clarkson is a better comparison than Ryder, IMO. Especially with his new found scoring touch.

Thanks a lot for the responses guys, I have been following his stats since he was signed but have only been able to see him play one game. I am excited to see him in Dallas soon.

He's a top prospect. Enjoy it. Plus, a plays a visually pleasing, smash-mouth game. What's not to be excited about?

The eventual suspension and neutering and trade to Pittsburgh.

I hope he plays Saturday and not Friday or both. I don't have tickets to Friday's game <.<

I would also love to see some other prospects come up like a couple from Sweden.

Christopher Nilstorp is healthy.

The team sent down Robinson today. Labrie also goes down, but that's been a move that probably should have happened sooner.

They have 9 D now.

Honestly, I would have liked to see Labrie play more because I'm not impressed by Sloan or Sneep and Labrie has been just as good and willing to hit. But he's still young and will get more ice time in Idaho..so..whatever.

There is Commodore too now that I remember. Wonder if he'll get in game shape.
