The 2010 NHL draft rankings big board Add to ...

With so many different NHL draft lists out there, which one do you choose?

Rather that pick one, given all the variation, I've gone with four and averaged their choices of the top 50 prospects to give us an overall ranking. The draft publications I chose are Bob McKenzie's picks at TSN, McKeen's Hockey, International Scouting Services and The Hockey News.

Here's the result:
