Could Kings lose their college prospects?

This is something interesting I found on USA today. I hope it does not affect our current college prospects.


Q: Any under-reported twists to the CBA?

A: Yes, if a drafted player stays in college until his class graduates, he becomes an unrestricted free agent on Aug. 15 of that year. This could make more players stay in college. Also, players making more than $75,000 in the minors have to clear waivers to come to the NHL. That, in effect, acts like a minor league cap because players won't want to have a salary that prevents them from moving easily to the big leagues.

That looks like the exact deal they have now minus the loophole

This was kind of the case with the prior agreement except that the cut-off date was June 1 and, depending upon the circumstance, the player became a FA on June 1 of his graduating year or June 1 of the following year.
