Carl and Joel also break down the latest of the week:

Leon Draisaitl signed a giant extension with the Edmonton Oilers. How does this impact the team into the future? Also, what does this mean for other contracts being handed out around the league?

Brandon Dubinsky is annoyed by the way that college players and being granted free agency as well as signing their entry level contracts. But is he right?
