The league makes sure that for example if a 3rd overll player does not want to show
the compensation would be 5th the following year not 4th,as compensation is the next selection then the defected player,so as to protect the 4 non play off teams,could have been done here imo
I will agree with you that losing the 1st rounders is a very harsh penalty. They should allow teams to trade their 1st rounders..I've always thought that was a stupid rule.

Under what circumstance would you opt in or opt out of a certain draft year? I'm curious.

edit..sorry just read your other post.
