All Steve Yzerman

from Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune,

Yzerman sat down Wednesday to address some of the items at the top of a long laundry list of things to work through before training camp starts in September.

Any chance you use the No. 6 overall pick as a trade chip?

I won’t say no, and we don’t have anything in the works right now. We’ve talked about the possibilities. I want to keep as many picks as possible. I think we just need to build up depth in our prospects, we need young players coming, so very remote that we move it.

How active should we expect you to be on July 1 when free agency begins?

As much as I would love to have a splash on July 1, I don’t want to sign a player just so we can have a press conference, it has to make sense. That’s the discipline we have to have. And frankly we’ve got some things within our own club that we have to take care of, like contracts and other things moving forward that we really need to focus in on and then slowly build around that.
