Sadly, your scenario is almost better than willingly making such a stupid decision based on nothing other than principle.
Which is fine, but when you have the 29th overall pick you don't play the odds that you'd win the cup the next year.
I was always under the impression he'd wait until the very last year as he might not be there by the time he has to give up the pick, so he wanted to keep all the assets he can.
