Player-inspired NHL rules changes

Here are the rules that were inspired by NHL incidents:

The Martin Brodeur Rule - Goalie acting as a third defenceman behind the goal line that is not within the trapezoidal area

The Sean Avery Rule - Purpose of improperly interfering with and/or distracting the goaltender as opposed to positioning himself to try to make a play

The Bobby Hull Rule - Amount of curve a blade could legally have

The Rob Ray Rule - Jersey tied-down

The Bill Barber Rule - Diving

The Matt Cooke Rule - Intentional hits to the head

The Danny Briere Rule - Circumventing NHL contracts

The Carl Brewer Rule: Players can't cut the palms out of their gloves.

The Reijo Ruotsalainen rule - player who has played in Europe after NHL season starts will have to go through waivers when signed by NHL team mid-season.

The Scotty Bowman/Don Cherry rule - Sending all players onto the ice after a goal

OK hockey enthusiasts, here are some questions that I like to know:

As for Mike Van Ryn, who found a loophole that states a player drafted off a college team could play one season of major junior hockey and then become a free agent. Is this loophole now closed? if so, what are restrictions?

In the new CBA, are there any mentions that players, who have drafted, are ineligible to gain unrestricted free agent status after leaving school?
