Theoretical Question...

Ok, I know how a kid in N.A. can re-enter the draft if he hasn't been signed in 2 years....

What if a kid is drafted out of Europe, but then decides to play major-junior in Canada... does the club maintain his rights as a Euro-drafted player, or does he become like a NA drafted player?

Can a player even switch to Major-junior from Europe after he is drafted?

No clue on the rest of your questions, but this answer is yes. IIRC Frederik Sjostrom was drafted by Phoenix and then came over and joined the Hitmen.

I "think" i can answer this:

You´re handled like a NA drafted player, if you do play in the NA Juniors when you´re drafted.
When you´re playing in CZE and then move to the OHL for just one season, then you´re still handled like a european drafted player.

It completly depends and the country you´re playing in, when you´re drafted.

Toni Söderholm (Oilers were interested in him last year) was a european guy who spent his complete draft years in NA and was a Free Agent because of this.
Hemsky played already in the Q, when he was drafted, so he´s NA handled, too.
Jaroslav Sklenar is a good example. He´s still Leafs property (as far as i know), but he decided to got to the OHL after beeing drafted, but he soon returned to CZE.
