The 2013 NHL Draft marks the 50th anniversary of the first amateur selection process, which was held June 5, 1963 in Montreal.

Since then, when the six NHL teams each made a first-round pick, the League has grown to 30 teams, and when the 2013 NHL Draft is held June 30 at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., 30 more players will be able to call themselves first-round NHL draft picks.

But who are the best first-round picks of all time? It's an interesting question sure to stoke debate, and the NHL.com offices are no different.

We assembled a panel of experts to rate the best first-round pick at each selection spot in the order to create the NHL.com Dream Draft.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
