2016 NHL Draft: Top 200 (Almost Final) Big Board

Widely-expected #1 pick, Auston Matthews - Bruce Bennett/Getty Images

With the Draft Combine only a few days away, I thought I'd get my pre-Combine Big Board up for people to have a look at. I'm still tinkering with it, moving guys around as I take another look at them here or there on Youtube or replays of older games. But generally this is pretty close to what my final list will look like. And I'll do one more Mock Draft after the Combine results come out, with some trades (of course) as I'm starting to get the vibe that this could be a very active trade market for teams leading up to and at the Draft this year.

I tried to separate into Tiers to give a sense of where I think the talent concentrations are. Of course, don't take my word for it. I don't know anything more than anyone else here on DBTB. Just happen to watch a lot of hockey!

Risers are in BOLD.

Fallers are in Italics.
