There wouldn't be any sort of bidding war because of the fact that there's already a rookie max salary scale in place. To have a draft when there isn't a season is ridiculous. Same with the 2005 draft. There shouldn't have been a draft either.
that's a terrible idea.

I don't see why not having a season should effect the draft. obviously who was best/worst should be factored in, and how they did it last time makes sense to me.

to just let anyone sign them (though i believe there is a cap even for performance bonuses on ELCs [mid 3.xx' mils i' believe?) goes exactly against what the NHL is locking out for....
