Brenden Dillon

How many of you guys think he could see significant amount of time for re big boys this season? Honestly, after watching alot of the development camp videos I feel he will end the season playing for the stars. I could be very wrong about him, but just watching him play I see something special. I almost feel like he's going to be our d version of Benn.

I don't know about the D version of Benn but I think he will finish the season in Dallas.

He's going to make Robidas expendable at the deadline.

Anyone have a feeling that if Grossman doesn't sign an extension by the deadline he'll be dealt as well? Dallas has been burned by not trading a few guys when they should and if a guy like Dillon and Larsen are ready then moving Robidas and Grossman for top forward help could make a huge difference in the future.

Eh, I really don't like the idea of movIng grossman. As far as I'm concerned hes our best defensive d-man by miles and I feel like losing him would really hurt.

I have a feeling Grossman will re-sign midseason.

if he hasnt signed and the stars arent firmly in the playoffs they should trade him.

don't want to trade grossman per-say but he's going to be a ufa and dallas can't afford to let another 1st round pick plus a prospect go on the off chance that the ownership situation finally gets settled and he signs next summer. dallas has to make a pitch and if nik agrees, great, but if not he has to be dealt.

Hows he looked so far? Haven't seen many Texas games at all this season.

I watched part of the game last night on FSSW+. I DVR'd it and kind of skipped around but from what I saw I was impressed. Has size, seemed very mobile..Looked good. Benn looked really good. Fraser..damn that guy is a puck magnet and can really shoot the thing. Reminded me of Neal.

So what's causing all the problems in the team then - is it the system they're using?

From what I've heard, their coach is just awful. All offense, let the goalie hang out to dry. And the team just isn't good enough to consistently put up 3-5 goals a game.

He'll almost certainly be gone next year.

When they were in the hunt there was talk that texas would be playing the same system as dallas. Itd be nice to know what happened to that idea.

It is strange. I'm a firm believer that the same/similar system should be played at the AHL and NHL levels. It generally helps for young players to feel comfortable playing a role they're comfortable with.

Seeing how well hes playing tonight, I figure I could go ahead and bump this and make it the all purpose "Dillon better be on the opening roster next year" thread.

How he performs in training camp will mean just as much and probably more than this game. It's a good start toward making the team though.

Hes obviously better than Pardy, he's less turnover/mistake prone than Robidas, he's faster and way more mobile than Souray while having a similair mean streak. I really don't see why he wouldnt make the team next year.

We don't know who is going to be acquired in the offseason.

But yeah, Dillon is probably better than all of those guys. I certainly don't want any of them back. If Dillon claims one of the empty spots they (hopefully) vacate in camp, great. He's certainly first in line currently as far as prospects go.

Great game for him tonight. Definitely a good thing for him, but as piqued said, training camp will probably be more important.
