But going in with that mindset has rarely worked out for the prospect doing it.
Trying to get 1st round money may be a reason, but it's not a good bet. Redrafts normally go later than where they were originally picked.

I'm too lazy to look this up, but when is the last time a redraft even got in the 1st round? Even the 2nd round seems rare, but I seem to recall it happening once or twice. At least with former Ducks prospects (who we follow), they generally go a round or two later.

If he wants money he'll have to wait 2 more years, like Schultz. That's 2 more years of lost wages, but his league probably pays a decent amount. It might even be more than he would make in the AHL.
