Like I asked before how would you feel if you had been drafted and sent to anywhere in your profession at the age of 15?
If you're in hockey and you don't like the idea of being drafted, go do something the **** else. Slaves had no rights and were indentured labour regardless of what they might want. Pro athletes (or aspiring pro athletes) happen to choose a career path that involves a limiting of your choice of employer. I have, in my hand, the world's tiniest violin, and it's currently dedicated 100% to hockey players.

Comparing lack of choice in employer to slavery is absolutely ridiculous; it's like comparing elementary school to prison because you have to do what you're told and there's no selection in the cafeteria.
