High marks for Stars' draft

June, 27, 2010
ESPN.com Insider Gare Joyce handed out an A-minus to the Stars for their draft. Well, for the drafting of goalie Jack Campbell in the first round. Here's Joyce's take:
The Stars were the first lottery team that can afford the time to wait for a goaltender to develop -- and they landed the best G prospect in several years, USDT's Jack Campbell. The grade here is for Campbell alone, really. It's hard to work up enthusiasm for soft Swedish defenseman Patrick Nemeth, their second-rounder. A more interesting play was the University of Michigan-bound Alexander Guptill, who tore up Junior A with Orangeville; Guptill was good for a few exceptional shifts most games but would take a shift or two off. Needed a challenge that he didn't get. Might be better served in Brampton of the OHL than waiting until 2011 to go to Michigan.
