I think the idea is that it helps the CHL. They keep more stars this way, it helps their fanbase and makes that league more profitable, which is good for the NHL.

The rule should be waived for 1st rounders imo as NHL teams tend to bump them up anyway ...

The Hamilton Bulldogs would certainly be the best option for Alex Galchenyuk next year.
It isn't solely determined by age but years of service in the CHL also factor into the equation. I don't recall exactly how the rule reads though.
