The Hurricanes are two days away from deciding who to select with the seventh overall pick in 2010 NHL Entry Draft. Will it be Swiss power forward Nino Niederreiter? Talented but oft-injured winger Brett Connolly? Eric Staal-esque Ryan Johansen? Europeans Michael Granlund or Vladimir Tarasenko? One of the "Big Three" defensemen? We're getting closer and closer to knowing.

But the impact on the Hurricanes from this weekend goes beyond who will be selected at No. 7. Our inaugural draft board ranks the top 100 players in this year's draft using a mathematical and observational formula. While the players are ranked one through 100, need will also be a consideration once teams get into their later picks. The listed position for each player is according to NHL Central Scouting Services.
