2013 NHL Draft: The Perfect Prospect for Every Lottery Team

The 2013 NHL draft is only a few days away, and the front offices of all 30 teams have their perfect player earmarked in hopes of getting the chance to draft him. While we'll never know for sure who each team is praying to the hockey gods to land, it's easy to speculate.

We can take a look at the roster and farm of any given team and figure out pretty easily where the greatest needs are.

To be a "perfect pick" for these teams, a player must fill an organizational need and have a high probability of still being on the board at the given spot. Of course, Seth Jones would be a perfect selection for, say, the Edmonton Oilers, but he just won't be there.

We're also assuming that these players will reach their projected potential. And lastly, this isn't a mock draft. We're not saying that this is the way the first 14 selections will go. Rather, we're examining which prospect would be a perfect fit on the given team.
