Maybe someone else can check on this, but I also heard that the big reason a lot of these 1st rounders have been signed is that the CHL - NHL transfer agreement has ended and that a lot of NHL teams are looking at having these guys play for their minor league affiliates if there's a lockout that's going to happen. They'll get to play at the pro level and in some cases, might be a better development ground than their current clubs.
