It's that time of year again! The Boston Bruins have been crowned this year's Stanley Cup Champions, and now, for many hockey fans around the league, the next most exciting thing to seeing their teams play again next season, is the possibility of drafting the next superstar in the league through the first round of the 2011 NHL entry draft.
This year's draft may not have the Sidney Crosby or Alex Ovechkin-type star power available, but many teams' general managers feel there are quite a few solid future NHL'ers to be seen throughout the first round.
As fans, we all want our teams to make the best decisions and to give us all a chance at someday putting one of these players' names on the back of our jerseys and into our hearts, as the athletes we dream may be a large part of our run at the coveted Stanley Cup.
Here are my predictions for the first round of the 2011 NHL entry draft! Enjoy!
