    The Dallas Stars had a rather uneventful draft having only 2 picks but most of the damage was done day one.

    The Dallas Stars made a big trade on day one sitting at 23rd GM Niece watched a few players falling his way but none managed to land in his lap so he went for the BPA 2009 12th overall pick Calvin Da Haan sending there first and NYI 7th back to the capitals.

    The next few were under the radar goalies whille GM Niece had some other targeted again they did not fall to him

    Andrei Makarov 181
    NHL: undrafted

    The 17 year old russian net minder has all the skills in the world to be a top net minder and he showed it in the ivan hilinka tournament despite not putting up great numbers if you looked at how much shots against he faced each game youd see he actually played better than the stats show. once again a long shot but the need for depth is great at this position

    Jonathan Iilahti 206
    NHL: 6th round 2010 (175)

    The Finnish Net minder has shown he can compete at an international level and has played very well in the finnish junior league of course there are alot of question marks about how he will play against better competition but given the lack of goalie depth the organization has we needed something in the bare cupboards

    Nothing wrong with these picks. Taking a goalie - whether in the forstrlind or the seventh - is even more like buying a lottery ticket than most prospects. Having more tickets increases your chances of having one of ten hit the jackpot. Put them in the bank, save em for a few years, then see how much you've won.
