WINNIPEG - On a day where over $550 million was handed out on the opening day of NHL free agency, Winnipeg Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff didn't allow the flurry of activity to force his hand.
He made one move on July 1 - inking defenceman Nathan Beaulieu to a one-year contract worth $1 million - but indicated more may be in the works.
After all, unlike the trade deadline in February, the free agency season isn't limited to how much gets done by the end of an afternoon.
"This talking period takes on its own life each and every year," said Cheveldayoff. "It brings different things and challenges - one thing it doesn't bring is a lot of sleep. It's a long process."
