Blashill is an elite-level coach, he was able to assess whether Kuffner is an NHLer in 7 minutes, no problem.

Not sure of the rules re: college signings this late, but if the new guys play 10 games, they still burn a year of RFA? So it makes sense to not play them all the last 10, altho one NHL game then you sit seems… odd.
