The Stars have missed the playoffs in 7 of 9 seasons. Ugh.
I got a ranch in downtown Dallas/I buy diamonds by the ton/Chase cuties in my Cadillac/Drill oil wells just for fun/But when it comes to boots, I need a deal/That will fit me right, toe to heel/So I get my boots at Western Warehouse.

Thanks to Hextall for just naming his pick without any additional nonsense.

With Eichel and Middlestadt, the Sabres now have the ugliest one two prospect punch.

Did Villardi rub his taint on a Canadian flag this morning? Talk about a fall from grace. You'd think he was Russian or something.

Of course the Kings get him. At the current draft rate, around 8:50 PM the Stars will be on the clock with the Ducks pick if they don't make a trade.

Holy crap, this is moving slow. I went out to dinner after the Heiskanen pick, walked around town for 20 minutes, and walked in to the goalie pick.

Nill is the guy who picks a kicker in the fifth round.

Different style of goalies, Campbell even in his highlights was flopping all over the place.

So what did Dallas have to give up to CHi to move up 3 spots?

Man, Heiskanen is getting the most love of any guy picked on the broadcast. The stuff being tweeted by the hockey media types is nothing but praise. I mean, the NBCSports guys just did a full segment where 75% of the talk was how much they each loved Heiskanen. Craig Button made a big point about how Heiskanen plays a mistake free game, which is why he gets the Lidstrom comparison.

So the Stars had Heiskanen as the best player in the draft. Oettinger best goalie.

Oh, and you just know that Montréal was hoping that Pierre-Olivier Joseph would be available at 25.
Thanks, Phoenix (they'll always be Phoenix to me, Elaine).
