2013 NHL draft lacks depth of talent

In discussion with dozens of scouts the past few weeks as we prepare for our annual Future Watch issue, The Hockey News has learned the much-ballyhooed draft of 2013 is more sizzle than substance. Its nothing special, after all.

The 2013 draft is not as strong or as deep as we first thought, said one scout, echoing the thoughts of many others. Its a deep top 10 and an OK first round, but I dont see a lot of depth. Is it deeper than 2012? Im not so sure.
The 2013 draft wont come close to 2003, another scout said. Lets make that clear right now. Take away the first eight or 10 picks and youre looking at guys who can contribute on the third and fourth lines, not the first line.
