Happy weekend. Not much happened on yesterday—the day was a bit of a nothing burger, if you will. Apt, because I trekked to a burger place yesterday night only to find that they’re closed until early September. I’m still not over it. Here are your weekend links.
Oh, also Brandon Dubinsky got angry about college free agency. Do you think he has a point?
The college free agency situation in the @NHL needs to be figured out...it's a joke especially to the guys that play major junior— Brandon Dubinsky (@BDubi17) August 25, 2017
Let me clarify...I want players to have all options they can when they sign a contract major junior players can't and it's not fair thats it— Brandon Dubinsky (@BDubi17) August 25, 2017

Hearing NCAA free agent Blaine Byron making an interesting decision. Will sign an AHL contract w/FLA containing an "out" clause...— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) August 25, 2017
Word is Byron wanted to take this route rather than sign a two-year ELC. Bit of a bet on himself.— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) August 25, 2017
Are the Free Agency rules for NCAA players working, or do they need to be changed?

Dubinsky is right. It’s a joke only drafted NCAA players can become FAs.
The rules may need a few tweaks, but it’s not a big problem.
It’s fine. He’s wrong.
