Last week, Corey Pronman released his Top 100 Draft Prospects. We wrote about it here, taking a look at who Pronman ranked in the ranges that the Toronto Maple Leafs are expected to pick. This week, The Hockey News released their Top 100 Draft Prospects list, so here we go again.

One of the reasons why it made sense to do this style of article again for THN's Top 100  is that there was so little overlap between THN and Pronman (besides the the fourth overall pick candidates, of course). We'll be talking about (almost) entirely different players today than we did last week.

More past the jump.
