Winnipeg Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff free agent frenzy scrum

Jets GM talks about the moves he made on the first day of free agency.

After a slower day than what we saw last year Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff spoke to the media about the moves he made:

GM Kevin Cheveldayoff:  On the conversation with Paul Stastny last night. Does he feel comfortable with the internal candiates to replace Stastny? How hard was it to say goodbye to Steve Mason and Joel Armia? On the deal with Brossoit. Competition for backup role.  Competition heading into training camp.  Did he talk to Hellebuyck about Broissoit?  Balance between finding good players and having to pay them.  On losing Stastny.  Does he plan on trying to get something done with Blake Wheeler this summer?  Is there fear of the Wheeler contract situation “lingering”?  On status of Jets RFAs.  With Stastny not signing is he confident that he won’t have to do any more “surgery” to his lineup to get his players signed.  Where is Patrik Laine on his to do list?  Thoughts on Jack Roslovic playing at centre?  What does he like on the depth pieces he brought into the organization?
