I'm fine with it, but I was just curious if anyone had a hypothesis on the timing.
My guess is before the season the Habs set goals/expectations for draftees and if they meet/exceed them they get a contract. I base this on nothing more than see who was signed and not signed.

- Vail had similar production to last season (understandable as the team relied on him a lot defensively to the point he actually played D) but technically not much improvement statistically.
- Thrower regressed statistically and struggled/off ice issues to the point of being healthy scratched (iirc).

Collberg, Bozon, Hudon on the flip side showed a lot of improvements on the stat sheet and likely in terms of play.
