No it doesn't, it allows the "have" teams to bulk up for playoff runs and protect their best future assets. If London had to surrender a 1st round pick for Austin Watson would that not help parity more by giving the Petes a better asset for the future while hindering a more developed club? It's the teams that struggle that need these picks and the rule prevents them from acquiring them in trade. Pretty dumb.
