You Make The Pick For The Dallas Stars!


With the 2012 NHL Draft kicking off this evening, I’ve been looking at prospects over the last few weeks that the Dallas Stars might be looking at with the 13th overall selection. Hopefully you gained some insight and knowledge on some of these young prospects and what they could bring to the Stars. So with the first round taking place tonight, I thought it might be a little fun to throw a poll out this morning and see what the fans thought.

Who would you draft at 13th if you were GM for the day? Maybe tw0-way center Brendan Gaunce (read here),or the talented center Radek Faksa (right here) if he doesn’t go in the top 11 picks, or how about possibly one of the best names in the draft with Zemgus Girgensons (read up)?  There are a few options, especially if you believe like many that the Stars NEED to pick a center.

But what about the defensemen? It is the draft class loaded with blueliners that could be taken in the top 40-50 selections. Maybe looking at big, tw0-way Cody Ceci (click here), or Finnish blueliner Olli Maatta (profile here), or the well-rounded Slater Koekkoek? It’s your call, make the pick boss:

Who would you select with the 13th overall pick?
