The Carolina Hurricanes would be currently picking fourth if the current standings held...
1. Colorado Avalanche: 31 points
2. Florida Panthers: 32 points
3. Calgary Flames: 32 points
4. Carolina Hurricanes: 34 points
The Canes have a chance to get the number one pick, but realistically; they will be looking at a pick ranging from two to four. With that said, here are four prospects to keep an eye on.
Defenseman: Seth Jones (consensus number one pick) (NHL Comparison: Alex Pietrangelo)
Center: Nathan MacKinnon (consensus number two pick) (NHL Comparison: John Tavares)
Left Wing: Jonathan Drouin (NHL Comparison: Patrick Kane)
Center: Aleksander Barkov (NHL Comparison: Anze Kopitar)

You know its a lottery right? Standings play a huge part but it doesnt mean we'd pick 4th.
Yeah, but much like the NBA Draft the draft usually stays close to the actual standings. If we're going to tank, I want to tank all the way to the top two.

^ Not worth a top five pick.
Nurse and Pulock could both be very good, but not for a few years most likely.
