Hear from Jets GM on the first day of free agency.

Day 1 of NHL Free Agency began at 11 AM CT today

Jets Free Agent News:  Tanev signs with Pens | Beaulieu re-signs with Jets | Myers signs with Canucks | Lindholm signs with Bruins | Schilling re-signs with Jets |

Scrum Topics:  Reflection on the “talking period”. Re-signing Nathan Beaulieu.  At what point did he realize Myers and Tanev wouldn’t be signing here in Winnipeg?  Thoughts on seeing Myers and Tanev moving on.  Expecting to make any more moves today?  Are they still talking to Ben Chiarot?  How surprised was he to see the first Offer Sheet in six seasons?  On an Offer Sheet getting a contract done quicker.  Will the flood gates open with Offer Sheets?  Does he feel confident that they would have the ability to fill positions from within the organization?  What is the comfort level of having Niku and Poolman slotting in?  On negotiations with Connor and Laine.  Chibisov and Luoto.  Types of players they are looking for.  Does the trade market quiet down?  On bargain deals becoming available.  On the lack of a middle class within the Jets organization.  The arms race in the Central.
