Seems to me that unless there is specific language written into some agreement, that nothing would actually prevent the draft from taking place.
The teams would simply be drafting the rights to those players. How those rights are handled are subject to the CBA, but not the rights themselves. There is no need for an agreement between the league and the players association since these prospects are not part of the players association. The 2005 WHA drafted prospect rights without ever having an agreement of any kind with any union.
