As I understood it.. if the team signs a replacement UFA, they are not entitled to a comp pick. The gray area is in what is considered a replacement. Detroit wont be getting one. I believe some teams automatically dont qualify for comp picks if their payroll is high (which is why NYR, TOR etc made those silly trades) so I dont think Dallas will get one. Nor will Boston for Hackett.. but if they do, it probably wont be a 3rd IMO.

I know PHI wont get a pick from PHX for Ranheim as that was only if he re-signed. There is an error on the PHX 8th pick.. it went to DAL I believe.. nothing to do with STL.
