NHL Draft 2013: 10 Bold Predictions for This Year's Event

The 2013 NHL draft is right around the corner, and it's shaping up to be one of the most interesting versions of the event we've seen in a long while. Hot on the heels of one of the most entertaining Stanley Cup Finals in recent memory and a crazy (BS) lockout that destroyed nearly half of the regular season, it's only fitting that we get a zany draft to cap it all off.

More so than in recent memory, there are a lot of questions heading into the NHL offseason. The added element of the compliance buyout adds another layer of intrigue, but any time names like Kris Letang and Roberto Luongo are being tossed around as trade bait, you know the possibility of a few Snorlax-sized trades is high.

Add in the "will they or won't they?" saga that is unfolding between the Colorado Avalanche and Seth Jones, and this draft will be chock full of entertainment for fans of all teams. The fact that all seven rounds will occur on the same day makes things interesting, too.

You just can't have 30 full team staffs in the same room for that long and not expect some fireworks.
