2. Entry Draft
Does someone know who has what picks in the upcoming drafts?
What is a Compensatory Draft pick and how does a team receive one?
-- Quoted from CBA Section 8.3(b)"
"In the event a Club loses its draft rights to an Unsigned Draft Choice drafted in the first round of the Entry Draft (except as a result of failing to tender a required Bona Fide Offer (as defined below)), who is again eligible for the Entry Draft or becomes an Unrestricted Free Agent, a Compensatory Draft Selection shall automatically be granted to that Club, which Compensatory Draft Selection shall be the same numerical choice in the second round in the Entry Draft immediately following the date the Club loses such rights."
Didn't teams used to get compensatory draft picks for losing their own UFA's?
-- Yes, this happened under the previous 1995 CBA but the practice was discontinued in the newer 2005 CBA.
