Just a year ago, the Boston Bruins grabbed Tyler Seguin with the second overall draft pick (Thanks, Toronto) (Thanks, Burkie) (Thanks, Kessel).

Tonight they sit a little lower (at 9), but a lot more comfortably, just nine days removed from winning the franchise's first Stanley Cup in 39 years.

Their needs aren't as great and the talent isn't as remarkable, but any draft is an important one in today's NHL.

All 30 teams, including the Winnipeg Jets, are present and accounted for, so let's get this thing started. Edmonton's on the clock.
