its alway been like that. And it's like that in the other CHL leagues also. The 96's can only be signed after the draft, not after the list comes out. They are free to sign with any CHL team. They have to go through waivers if they sign in a league outside their territory, etc..etc, but they can sign with any CHL team.
Just as a side note to that - that rule (being able to sign as free agents if not drafted in your draft year), is also the reason why having players commit to either playing junior or college would never work. Kids would be told by their agent to commit to playing college, however, have them play junior A at 16/17 and then sign with the team of their choice anywhere in canada if they would change their minds and want to play junior. If they get picked up on waivers by a team they dont wish to report to, they can just choose not report!! Can you imagine the bidding war!!!
complete side note, but interesting nonetheless.
