    Does anyone know when they announce the location for next years draft? Also how do they determine it?

    Toronto will probably be it, but Tampa Bay might be

    Anaheim or Phoenix. Only teams never to host an ASG or Draft. Anaheim has been in the league for a pretty good amount of time now.

    The Kings just hosted a draft, so I have doubts about Anaheim.

    The Flyers keep telling the league they want to host the draft, but it's hard when you keep trading all your draft picks.

    NHL teams have to apply or bid to host the draft.
    The host is usually announced in April or May 1 year prior.

    Hopefully it is held somewhere that cares about hockey and attendance is large.

    Should be in Edmonton.

    When was the last time a team had three 1st Overall picks in a row?

    As a new resident of Phoenix, I heartily approve of these choices.

    I would want Colorado to have it because it has either been forever since we had it or we never had it. But I predict it will be a Southeast or a Pacific team.

    Toronto is probably another good bet, considering how good this draft is.

    Thanks!

    Since year 2000 all Canadian teams except for Edmonton have hosted the draft at least once. I can see Edmonton being an option for the draft in 2012. Especially because we're probably going to have another high draft pick. Colorado or Philly would make good hosts also.

    I agree it hasn't been here since 1999 when Patrik Stefan was drafted 1st overall.

    Once we get the new arena we will get an ASG/Draft or both. Until then I don't see it coming to Edmonton.

    Well they should definitely host the ASG. The ASG is already basically a weekend vacation for the players. SoCal is a perfect vacation spot.

    The Flyers have lobbied to host the draft in 2012 or 2013 so hopefully it will come to Philly in one of those years.

    There were a few posters who thought the same would happen in LA this past year. I thought it was a decent turnout considering the Draft started at 4pm on a Friday afternoon. I wondered if there was any legitimate concern about a prospect being stuck on the freeway while his name was being called.

    Although I also wonder how much the attendance could fluctuate based on who's picking where. There were hundreds of Oilers fans in attendance, but I could count on one hand how many Bruins/Panthers/Blue Jackets/Islanders jerseys I spotted.

    As long as tickets remain free, folks will show up. There might not be the ticket demand that you'd see in Toronto, but I imagine there are 10,000 hockey fans in any market that would sit through the first round of a draft.

    LA is a hockey market....with 2 teams and they drew over 11,000 for the draft.
    As we all know Phx has trouble giving away tickets for a game never mind a draft and despite what Bettman says it is not a hockey market.
    Picture big attendance at a June draft in PHX....hard to imagine.

    devils got a brand new arena, same with pittsburgh. Both would likely make good bids.

    Toronto is in the same position. There was some story last summer about Burke lobbying for a ASG/Draft in the near future, and I kept thinking, "Why? We'll either be crap and have no All Stars, or we'll have no 1st."

    Toronto made a bid for the draft in 2012 as well as an outdoor game.
