The dust has yet to settle on the 2013 NHL Draft, but that hasn’t stopped Future Considerations from putting it in the past.

For the scouting community, attention has already shifted from what happened at the draft to what can and will happen next season with the 2014 crop.

As there is every summer, questions about how the draft year will unfold before us are already circulating. Can Sam Reinhart do what few have before him and retain the top spot in the 2014 NHL Draft throughout the year? Will a European like William Nylander challenge the throne? Can defenseman Aaron Ekblad enter — and takeover — the conversation?

Who will be a surprise? Who will jump up the rankings as a few inevitably do? Likewise, who will see their draft stock take a tumble?

In 11 months, we’ll have the answers.
