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

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.

— Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen on Brandon Saad, who he acquired in a trade with the Blackhawks on Tuesday
