College/UFA question

I was just wondering, how long does a team hold the rights of a drafted college player who graduates? I know the Justin Schultz thing happened because he played a year of junior and left school after his third year, then refused to sign with the Ducks within 30 days. Does that 30-day negotiating window apply to all players who decide to leave school four years post draft? For example, does Bergevin have to sign Kristo 30 days after graduation or let him become UFA?

Teams hold the rights of draft NCAA players 2 different ways.

1) drafted player doesn't go to the NCAA right away, spends a year in the USHL, USHS, etc... In this case, said player can opt out after his 3rd year in the NCAA and become a UFA on July 1st. To do so he must inform his team before June 1st. If the player doesn't opt out, then his NHL must sign him by August 15th after his Senior year.

2) drafted player goes directly to the NCAA, his NHL team has to sign him by August 15th of his Senior year.

Kristo- Habs have until August 15th to sign him.
Walsh- Habs have until August 15th to sign him.
Bennett- He has until June 1st to notify the Habs if he intends to become a UFA on July 1st
MacMillan- After next season, he has until June 1st to notify the Habs if he intends on becoming a UFA on July 1st
Didier- Habs have until August 15th of his Senior year to sign him
Cichy- Habs have until August 15th, 2014 to sign him
Sullivan- After his junior year he can opt out and become a UFA.
