ESPN Insider Grant Sonier, a long-time NHL scout, has ranked the prospect pools of the 30 NHL teams, and the Dallas Stars are No. 10 on the list.

Sonier said this about the Dallas prospects:

The Stars rank this high for having both quality and quantity. Scott Glennie (eighth overall, 2009) is leading the way. Alex Chiasson (38th overall, 2009) of Boston University is still in college and Jamieson Oleksiak (14th overall, 2011), formerly of Northeastern University, is now embarking on the junior route. Both have a chance to be big-time NHL players if they improve their skating. Chiasson is a forward with size, hands and a nose for the net. Oleksiak is a monster at 6-foot-7, and has loads of talent.

Sonier, who doesn’t specifically mention goaltender Jack Campbell, lists Brett Ritchie (44th overall, 2011) and John Klingberg (131st overall, 2010) also as being on the radar.

The rankings, which are topped by the Florida Panthers, are here.
