- If the cases get to arbitration, it will be Montreal's decision as to whether or not the arbitrator will award one or two year deals to Lars Eller and P.K. Subban.
The following dates are the deadlines by which the Habs must sign a currently unsigned player or relinquish their rights without compensation:
August 15, 2014:
Michael Cichy (7/199, 2009 - Western Michigan, NCAA)
June 30, 2015:
Andreas Engqvist (undrafted FA - Atlant Mytishchi, KHL)
June 1, 2016:
Daniel Audette (5/147, 2014 - Sherbrooke, QMJHL)
Brett Lernout (3/73, 2014 - Swift Current, WHL)
Nikita Scherbak (1/26, 2014 - Saskatoon, WHL)
August 15, 2016:
Colin Sullivan (7/198, 2011 - Miami, NCAA)*
June 1, 2017:
Artturi Lekhonen (2/36, 2013 - Frolunda, SHL)
Martin Reway (4/116, 2013 - Gatineau, QMJHL)^
June 30, 2018:
Joonas Nattinen (3/65, 2009 - MODO, SHL)

August 15, 2019:
Hayden Hawkey (6/177, 2014 - Omaha, USHL)*
Nikolas Koberstein (5/125, 2014 - Olds, AJHL)*
^ - Per Sec. 8.6 (b)(ii) of the CBA, the Habs have four years to sign Reway even though he was drafted out of the QMJHL which typically holds a two year signing limit. This is as a result of Reway opting to play for HC Sparta Praha beginning in 2014-15 instead of staying in major junior.
The following players have their rights held indefinitely by the Habs due to a lack of a transfer agreement:
Alexander Buturlin (2/39, 1999 - DNP in 2013-14)
Andrei Kruchinin (7/189, 1998 - Sokol Krasnoyarsk, VHL)
Konstantin Korneev (9/275, 2002 - Kazan, KHL)
Andrei Sidyakin (8/202, 1997 - last played in 2011-12)
Maxim Trunev (5/138, 2008 - Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk, KHL)
* Player can drop out of college and become a UFA one year earlier than their listed date if they so desire as it will be their fourth year since being drafted.
