You don't have to worry about teenagers choosing another league. How likely are US and Canadian born kids are going to move to Russia to play? I don't know why you're so worried about the draft either, the best players in the world already come over for the draft.
I think cap hits should be the actual pay. No more ridiculous front loaded contracts, but I'm sure the players love this. It would make handling cap space more creative.
If you make cap hit = annual salary then you don't need the age 35 retirement rule. Think about it.
A lot of teenagers are talented at multiple sports and end up making a choice. I think it's more of an issue in the US.
Not sure why you focused on what were two secondary points. Maybe I just shouldn't make secondary points. It confuses people.
