I didn't think they had to do that this offseason since he's playing in Europe. But I see a San Jose prospect from the 2008 draft was in the same boat, so maybe it's true. I think what happens is that you sign a player to a basic entry level deal, but he can continue playing in Europe for next season. Retaining rights is more of a formality then.

So I'm now confused at the language.
