In the meantime teams get a better handle on the players they are going to draft, what with them being a year older and all, junior teams get to keep their stars, and we don't have to screw around with some sort of bizarre lottery that in the end really doesn't make much sense to anybody.
What would happen to previously traded 2013 picks?
