I believe the idea was that teams in financial trouble would be given a draft pick only if both the NHLPA/NHL agreed on it and only as a last resort.

Pretty much what happened with Pittsburgh and Crosby.

Not sure how they'd work out where the draft pick would be, but it's simply another tactic to split the owners. Smaller market owners (those that may be/are currently in financial trouble) would love the idea of getting a Crosby to save the franchise, larger market owners would reject it.
