I'm having some trouble figureing out the prospect criteria for European players. It seems a bit vague. It reads as follows.... 3. European players who sign their first NHL contract at or above the age of 22 have three seasons from the time they sign that contract to meet the above criteria. Those European players below the age of 22 that have signed a NHL contract will be subjected to the criteria in section one. Now specifically speaking of the Leafs, they have two players that would seem to fit that category. Pierre Hedin and Mikael Tellqvist. Both are European players who signed contracts after their 22nd birthday. So they should have 3 years after signing those contracts to still be considered prospects right? So why aren't they? Furthermore, the Leafs just drafted Roman Kukumberg in this years draft. He's 24. Why shouldn't he be considered a prospect?
