I just hope more Stars fans than Blackhawks fans show up.

Attending a draft has to be like going to a graduation for a school where you know none of the students.

https://theathletic.com/299179/2018/04/ ... nhl-draft/

Between 2008 and 2016 the Stars made nine first-round picks that since went on to play 662 NHL games by the conclusion of the 2017-18 season.

That’s an average of 73.6 games per first-rounder. The NHL average for that time was 209.91 games per first-rounder and the second-worst team, the Montreal Canadiens, were 52.5 games better with 126.1 games for their first-round picks.


Between 2013 and 2016, four drafts and first-round picks have averaged 101.95 games played. The Stars’ first-round picks during that time have averaged 52.6 career games, which ranks fourth-worst in the NHL. Realistically, it’s third-worst if you take into account that the New York Rangers had zero first-round picks during that time.

Why do any of the people associated with drafting still have jobs?

Because they've been selling us on bullshit about how they want their prospects to get overripe in the minors. That's code for "these kids aren't good enough."

That's The Detroit Way, which, as you may have noticed, is also not working out so great in Detroit.

At this point virtually all of the Dallas Stars entire front office and coaching staff is made up of “establishment” guys.

Jim Nill is in his 5th season in Dallas. Previously he spent nineteen in Detroit with the Red Wings. This is Les Jackson’s twenty-ninth season with the Stars. Scott White is in his thirteenth year in the organization. He has been the Texas Stars General Manager, and given how little talent the Stars have sent to Austin he might deserve a raise with how many former Baby Stars are on the roster. Mark Janko is in his seventeenth season with the franchise. J.J. McQueen is in his twenty-second year with the Stars. He was the strength and conditioning coach before being promoted to Player Development Coordinator.

Rich Peverley is there and has the same title was McQueen. Mike Valley, who took a beating from fans as the Stars goaltending coach, is on the Masthead too.

Ignoring the last two, the two furthest down the list, the least experienced person in the front office has been in professional hockey for 13 years which seems reasonable. Outside of Nill, the least tenured person with the organization is White at 13 years. That…that sounds like corporate inbreeding.

Two Russians wingers ranked around the Stars pick.

a pair of Russian wingers, Grigori Denisenko and Vitali Kravtsov, tied at No. 15. Farabee moved up two spots from mid-season while Denisenko and Kravtsov made huge gains, from Nos. 21 and 39, respectively.

Any good enigmatic Russian forwards or terrible Scandinavian goalies available at 13? Asking for a friend.

Grigori Denisenko and Vitali Kravtsov (would be more similar to Gurianov) are ranked tied for 15th on McKenzie's NHL scouts polls ratings.
Center Jesperi Kotkaniemi would be a good fit for the Stars, he's ranked 10th, so might be available at 13.

Among the players they talked to Wednesday were Joe Veleno of Drummondville and Barrett Hayton of Sault Ste. Marie.
