I really thought they'd pass on this year's pick given it was 29th. What are the odds of them being even close to that high next year?
The option is 2013 or 2014.

Why did they decide to keep the pick rather than wait for next year's draft? Because the Devils' scouting staff is confident it can get a good prospect this year and doesn't expect to be picking much higher in 2013.

What does the '13 draft look like?
