We got a 2nd rounder when Cherepanov passed away. Calgary would have gotten a 2nd for Erixon if he had gone back into the draft.
Maybe the rule should be changed. If a 1st round pick who goes unsigned gets you a compensatory 2nd, then a 2nd should get you a 4th and a 3rd a 6th...or something like that. It's one thing when a pick busts...but to have him walk for nothing does seem unfair.
