The teams that are good at the draft table will still gain more assets and hold those assets for dirt-cheap prices for several years.

There's no reason teams should be able to hold a player 'captive' until they're of X age as has been the case forever in hockey. It doesn't happen in any other profession.
Ratcheting will lead to walking away means free agency which means loss of assets
