Lots of defensemen. If Borelli doesn't stick around I would expect them to draft a goalie.

Yeti said...

Borelli is as good as gone, from what I understand. I expect at least one goaltender to be drafted tomorrow. Now that I think about it, there are no goaltenders on the affiliate list. So, we could see the Stars draft two or three goaltenders tomorrow.

Too bad we don't have a pick until the fifth round :(

Goaltending could be a weakness this year...

Yeti said...

It's waaaay to early to say what could be a weakness next season. Remember two seasons ago when the Stars opened the season with Hopper and Murdock? Jimmy went and obtained Reekie. Never doubt the connections McGroarty has with other leagues. I would not be surprised to see him bring in another goaltender from the WHL or BCHL.

Something you don't see very often, Austin Wuthrich scored in 14 games with his team and had 32 goals. He NEVER had a game where he scored 1 goal. He scored 2 or 4 goals in every game that he scored in. Weird.
