Names Galore- Little Actions

from the CP via TSN,

The second wave is ready and waiting.
After a flurry of activity in the first two weeks of NHL free agency, where the bigger names all found new homes with rich, long-term contracts, a number of unrestricted free agents are now hoping to get their names on deals….
Now that the first wave of free agents has come and gone like a blur, the league as a whole takes a deep breath and regroups for the second wave.
The signings will come in dribs and drabs over the rest of the summer.
“The first week of free agency is 100 miles per hour,” said agent Pat Brisson, who got Daniel Briere a big payday with Philadelphia on July 1. “After that you see a little decline. Things slow down a little. Some GMs may wait a little on some needs, see if the price comes down. On the flip side as a player, you have to be patient.
“And sometimes that pays off.”
