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.

Okay let's skip my over exaggeration with slavery, you still haven't answered the question.

And the WHL doesn't NEED the draft, they choose to have it.

NCAA teams offer scholarships (job opening)s and interviews take place where both college and player decide to go the same way or not.

It's a different way more fair to both parties, the draft is obviously tilted in favor of one side only right now.
