So what happens when Hedman or some other top European prospect (or heck any prospect) gets drafted in the top 2 or 3, and says, thanks but no thanks, I'm not signing for your team for reason X?

Good luck with the 2nd round pick?

Is the NHL going to be baseball where kids threaten JuCo, Prep-School or whatever it is to avoid being picked by certain teams? Is that what you want?

It is not a good system and leaving teams who critically need a dynamic talent instead of a 2nd rounder only hurts the league. When you're selected by a team, it is a privilege to just be picked. Letting drafted top end prospects opt out of going places is a slippery slope
