They could just take the compensation and then trade the picks back for those players so they keep'em. The only downside is the potential salary inflation they maybe would have not gotten if the original GM had more time to negotiate.
For whatever reason, Boston didn't qualify Marchand or Lucic, so they were unrestricted and signed with Philly for no compensation.
