Skittles it worked like this

the pick depended on different factors but Big name UFA's fetched 2nd round picks, while lesser players would get you worse picks.

now lets use Leetch as an example.

The Rangers traded the RIGHTS to brian Leetch on June 30th to the Edmonton Oilers for Jussi Markanen

on July 1st(the very next day) he became a UFA and signed with the Rangers shortly after.

as a result Edmonton recieved the Compensation draft pick from the league.

bassicly it was cheating the system, Edmonton ended up getting a 2nd round pick for Jussi Markanen while the Rangers picked up Jussi Markanen for NOTHING.

this has been fixed in the new CBA as teams now recieve compensation picks for unsigned 1st round draft picks(RJ Umberger for example) and not lost free agents.
I get it, thanks. Now I still don't understand what Recividist was saying.

That would take an infinite number of spell checkers at an infinite number of CPUs.

There is a program you could download that spellchecks everything you type. I used to have it, I'll see if I can find it.
