If any of you have browsed NHL.com over the last week or two, you would've seen their doing an event leading up to this month's draft.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first NHL Draft, NHL.com assembled a 13-member panel to select the best first-round picks of all time, based on selection number. NHL.com will feature one of the top first-round picks each day, beginning with the best No. 30 pick on June 1 and culminating with the all-time No. 1 pick on June 30, the day of the 2013 NHL Draft.
Again, realize that it is only the history of the first round, so the best man taken at no. 30, and so on. So far, the Devils already have 3 of the best first round picks in history, and we are only at no. 18. Gomez @ 27, Marty @ 20, and Dano @ 18... could we get Parise tomorrow @ 17? (Sykora had a lot of votes at no. 18 too)
