To be fair, that's kinda true; the draft is some commie bullshit.
Not so much "commie" as corporate monopolistic BS ... but a lot of that argument is based on the false narrative that players only option is to play in the NHL. If they care that much about personal choice, the various European leagues would welcome them with open arms. One interesting hypothetical: what would happen to the NHL draft if a raft of top players collectively ditched the NHL until they aged into FA status?
