The difference is at the end of last season Couts and Read had played over 65 games and were considered graduated. Players like RNH and Schenn played just barely under the 65 NHL games and were still considered "prospects" by Hockey's Future and included on the top 50 prospects list. Over the summer it appears they decided that made no sense as they are established NHLers and are missing the cut off by like 2 games and excluded them from the top 50 prospects when they were released a month or two back.

So they essentially "Graduated" over the summer without playing a game because HF decided to make an exception in their prospect criteria. Does that make sense?

This scenario is covered in the note at the bottom of their prospect criteria.
