The June 1 deadline for teams to sign some of their prospects has passed, and I am confused over one aspect of this. Why is it that, had the Penguins not signed Maxime Talbot by June 1, he would have re-entered the draft this year, yet R.J. Umberger became an UFA after he did not come to terms with the NY Rangers? What is the difference between these two situations? Does it have do with RJ sitting out a year, or because Maxime played in Juniors, while RJ played college? Thanks for bearing with my ignorance.
