    Why is it that in the second round of the draft there were 31 picks instead of 30, and in the third round, i believe there were 33 picks instead of 30?

    Some picks are given to teams in compensation to loosing players to the UFA market.

    Those picks don't come from other teams, they are just added to the picks already existing.

    I think that's what you're talking about...

    Also, if you don't sign a 1st round pick within 2 years and lose that players rights, you get a 2nd round pick (30 picks back) as compensation. Last year, the Rangers didn't sign Umberger (who was originally drafted in 20th overall by VAN in 2003), so they go the 50th pick in 2005 as compensation (all picks approximated based on my bad memory).
