I like AD, but I agree that he does seem to go back and forth on this matter too much for my liking.
The two year rule is interesting. As others have noted, it is also interesting that only AD has reported it. It seems like a potentially massive loophole that the owners received the shaft on.
Imagine a Russian player Kulikov decides he will not sign a new deal as a RFA and simply plays in the KHL for two years, make large money, and then return to the NHL as a UFA at the age of 23 or 24. I have a hard time believing that the owners agreed to this loophole.
