No other team can do that.
So that's why the Ducks have a huge advantage, but of course he could decide that he'd rather go to a different spot.
Still think the Ducks will end up with him, but it's an interesting dilemma.
He turns 22 on June 6th. Prior to that, he has to get a 3 year ELC. After that, he only can sign a 2 year ELC. If I'm not mistaken, the Ducks only retain his rights for 30 days after he leaves school, correct? So the timing will all be based on when he leaves - if he drops out early then the Ducks burning that extra year will net him some cash but the same number of ELC years.
