NO organization would support their GM tossing away their money for a draft pick, and that doesn't even factor into the possibility that the pick made may bust. Then you just paid $24 mil in this Dipietro hypothetical trade idea and got NO return on investment and your paying $1.5 mil for the next 16 years to a player no longer on your team.

The CBA is created that doesn't allow the selling of draft picks for cash and this would be a end-around attempt to the most drastic extreme to get around that.
Yes, a lot of money to get into a long shot gamble.

Let's change it and see if paying $24 million makes more sense this way? Assuming you can buy-out someone else's player.

Komisarek - Islanders buy-out (if rules permit) or they can play him
for
DiPietro - buy-out
Strome
Nelson

Two first round picks but with less gamble involved.
