I am still surprised the player or draftee gets no financial compensation. tks for your usefull explanations.
Well, I think most of the financial compensation comes in the form of making more money than you ever could dream of making in Europe, don't you?

And to comment on the original post... Tobias Stephan is the backup in Dallas this year. Hull and Jackson have said that it's his job to lose and they still haven't signed anyone, so he's probably gonna be the #2 going forward.
