Why does there need to be a draft this year?

I apologize if this has been dealt with already, but why is the NHL so intent upon having a draft this year?

The way I see it, very fairest way to settle draft position is to wait a whole season. That is the only way to get a true draft order. And for teams like the Flyers, it would seem better, since there would be greater depth.

Has the NHL gave reasons for feeling they HAVE to have a draft this year, or is the Sidney Crosby Hype too much for them to wait a year for?

Each year maybe three players from the previous year's draft actually make their teams, with few having an impact, so other than the Crosby situation, what is the motivation for forcing a draft now?
