*We made it through the long weekend opening of free agency without Ron doing anything completely insane. Biggest thing was signing Dale Weise which like...whatever, I guess. [BSH]

*The Flyers also signed a former Hobey Baker winner to bring a little depth to Lehigh Valley. [BSH]

*In fact the Phantoms are looking pretty good right now. [Highland Park Hockey]

*One thing Hexy did that gives a little pause is signing Boyd Gordon. If it's for the Phantoms, who cares, but if he intends for this guy to play with the big boys...eeeeehhhhhh not great. [BSH]

*Have a look at this handy list of every single free agency signing thus far, just in case you missed something. [SB Nation]

*DGB reviews all of the weekend moves and evaluates who won and who lost the opening days of the FA period. [VIce Sports]

*Dale Weise is hoping he can do a bit of everything for the Flyers this season. [CSN Philly]

*This quiet free agency day is part and parcel of Hextall's "slow and steady" approach to rebuilding this team. [Inquirer]

*Brayden Schenn is definitely getting signed. Allegedly. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, one of the newest members of the Flyers organization celebrated with orange and black cupcakes, because these are kids and they're adorable. [BSH]
