    Hopefully he stays at Colgate for another year

    To give some context about how bad of a team Colgate is, there's no other NHL draft picks on the roster, the leading scorer is a sophomore who had 30 points in 40 games, and nobody else on the team scored over 19 points. Absolutely 0 offensive firepower and very little defensive support.

    I would love him to play in Texas next year but a 3rd year at Colgate wouldnt be all that bad. I just hope we dont sign him and Oetter in the same offseason

    Hopefully for Colgate? It seems like he doesn't have much to prove there anymore, so wouldn't another year be bad for his development? I'm asking more than I'm telling, I know goalies are voodoo...

    I dont see how one more year would be bad for his development. He only has 1 year as a starter under his belt since he was the backup as a freshman. I want him signed because I want Dallas to move on from the aged, not that good vet, type of thing they keep doing in the AHL because they dont seem to trust their young goalies. However if he stays for a 3rd year in college I wont complain and I really dont think it would hurt his development in the slightest. His numbers are unreal but if you watch him play there are clearly things he needs to improve on and those can be touched up either at Colgate or in Cedar Park.

    Yet another Stars 5th round pick that could potentially be a steal for them....obviously way too early to tell though. Could just as easily end up being nothing

    Awesome, it would be great if he could become NHL-ready sooner rather than later since Bishop will probably trend down into backup status within a couple of years. No pressure though!:sarcasm:

    (Also, I always breathe a sigh of relief when NCAA players sign even though it's a fairly irrational fear since the vast majority of the good ones do sign with the team that drafted them.)

    He should have a good year in the AHL, I imagine him playing 60% of games and 40% going to Landon Bow.

    Really happy for him. I'll be watching more AHL hockey for sure this year. Dallas going with a Bow/Point tandem is what I was hoping Ottawa would be doing with Hogberg/Gustavsson.

    Awesome. Hope he has a couple good years in the AHL and can take on the backup spot.

    Awesome for stars. Now you guys should trade jake oettinger to the isles. We had a tough week.

    Yeah it's not like you guys have any special goalie prospects, you only have *checks notes* Ilya Sorokin, Linus Soderstrom, and Jakub Skarek. Scrubs.

    Sorokin May never come over. Soderstrom and Skarek have potential but it remains to be seen.

    Backup? He has starter potential.

    Sweet.

    Between Point and Oettinger, it's nice to see something in the prospect cupboard for the Stars in goal.

    Jack Campbell was an unmitigated flop, so perhaps the scouts have learned from their mistake.

    Agreed, but he’ll likely have to be a back up for a few years getting his feet wet.
