Not sure if that goes to ATL or if it just disappears.

It disapperas. Atlanta gets a compensation round draft pick.

Angels gave up their 1st rounder for Hamilton. Rangers however didnt get Angels pick (around 20 overall). That pick is simply lost. Rangers will instead pick at the end of the 1st round after all the other teams have picked. So in reality in 5 teams give up 5 picks for signing free agents, 1st round affectively becomes a 25-pick round.
