Heika: My guess as to why the Stars have struggled with first-round picks
Is there any way that the Stars would trade up in the draft? Maybe package a player and a pick to get a top prospect
I do not believe that is in their plans. I don’t think there is anyone they want so badly that they are willing to give up what it would cost to move up.
I’ve been reading about NHL scouting and height bias. For example, selecting based on the Central Scouting ranking has no correlation with NHL games played, yet selecting on actual point production has a strong correlation. That makes me nervous about drafting Lawson Crouse. I’m intrigued by Travis Konecny, who one scouting report said was “as exciting as Kate Upton in a wet bikini contest.”
It’s a gamble trying to bet on 18-year-olds who played in different leagues. In talking with Stars people, they say they are not always honest in their assessment when talking to reporters or “draft experts”, so my guess is other teams are the same. If the mock draft people are basing their assessments on what they hear from scouts, and the scouts aren’t always honest, then the only true read we’ll get is on draft day. I hear good things about Konecny. I also hear good things about Timo Meier. So who will be available for the Stars in the first round?
