NHL free agent frenzy kicks in this morning

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 5/7/2013 (1508 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

Good morning, Jets fans.

It’s free agent frenzy time and the action kicks off at 11 a.m. and we’ll be hunkered down in the Matt Frost Media Centre at our downtown rink.

Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff and his team are set up in a boardroom in the Jets offices at MTS Centre with spread sheets, scouting reports and cell phones littering the table.

For a look at the Jets needs and possibilities check out @wfpedtait and his work in this morning’s Free Press or on

We’ll be following the action and the minute we get a sniff of what the Jets are up to we’ll be tweeting and firing out web stories. We’ll also have analysis of the Jets moves or lack thereof later in the day.

Here’s a look Tait’s take on the Jets' most pressing need for a top six right wing, the teams payroll and signed players picture as well as some other big names on the market.
