The 2010 NHL Entry Draft promises to be one of the best drafts in recent history. With a wealth of talented defenders and a plethora of high octane forwards the NHL will be reaping the benefits of this class for years to come.
The forwards race in particular has been quite intriguing. The No. 1 pick, unlike years past, is completely up in the air. The question of Taylor vs. Tyler has been tossed out thousands of times, and still no one definitively knows who is the best.
The rest of the pack have been rarely mentioned, but that doesn't diminish the fact that there is a lot of talent left over to fill up two or three rounds of potential stars.
A bumper crop of outstanding forwards will be on display, and many teams should be extremely excited going into the draft about what they may end up getting. With a wide range of talents, including playmaking centres, power forwards, and outstanding snipers, many teams will have a lot to work with coming out of this draft.
The following article outlines the 10 best forward prospects available in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
