“We’re still in a position to do that,” Yzerman told reporters. “We have the cap space. We have roster spots to fill, so we have to be careful — you can get to the cap very quickly — but we’re in a position to potentially do future deals like this if they come along.”

Yzerman added that nobody wants to give up picks but sometimes they are in a position where they don’t have much of a choice.

“Nobody wants to give up picks or prospects but sometimes you have to do what you have to do to make your team better, and we’re trying to — I don’t want to take advantage of that, but find teams that are in a position that need to to do that, and again, we’re trying to add picks or prospects and at the same time ice a team.”
