With only 4 scenarios left to determine the first 26 teams in the 2016 draft order, I thought I would go through and map out where each team would pick after the chaos of the playoffs.

The Bruins are affected by tomorrow's games, holding the Sharks first round pick. That pick could be as low as 18th if they lose, or as high as 30th if they win the Stanley Cup. If the Sharks win, the best the Bruins pick could be is 27th. Here are the five possible scenarios for that pick:

SJS-STL

SJS - DAL

NSH - DAL2

NSH - STL
