Is it so hard to believe that a different draft system would produce a different draft result? If a team saw potential in the then-21-year-old Rinne, they probably would have picked him over a younger player with less polish, which is exactly what happens now (it's what happened with Patrick Cehlin last year).

On the other hand, players like Mark Streit, who was 26 when he was drafted in in the last round 2004, probably would not have been selected and instead signed as a free agent after the lockout.
