If Kristo wanted to be a UFA, last summer was his only chance as it can only be after 3 years of NCAA play (if you played in another league right after being drafted). It's complicated, but that's the situation.

Anaheim didn't forget anything, Schultz was holding all the cards and ****ed them over.
Ah, thanks for helpful info...totally understand now.
So, Schultz held all the cards...and chose to go to Edmonton (good to know that there are UFA players that choose to go to Edmonton...'cause it doesn't always seem to be the case but Schultz is proving this theory wrong...good for Oilers).
