The article focused on three players who had already played a full season of NHL hockey and normally would not under the expired bargaining agreement be eligible to return to their junior teams. Carter and Richards haven't played in the NHL and would still have junior eligibility.

Unfortunately, the article didn't directly discuss how this would affect players such as Carter and Richards, but an NHL representative stated clearly that the rules regarding junior players (not necessarily just those who have played an entire year) were no longer enforceable due to the lack of a new agreement. So ultimately, you're probably right on the mark, Diesel.
