I have a question regarding entry-level contracts. How does it effect players who sign a contract and then are on loan to a European club. Does the contract kick in right away or is it on hold until he is on the active roster on either NHL or AHL team? For example, somebody signed a ELC in 2005 and was loaned to Swedish league for two years and decides to return to North-America in 2007. Does he have one or all three years left on his ELC?
