from Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution,

Q. Are there trades, call-ups in the works, and how do you see this roster changing?

A. That’s a tough question to answer. Have a talked to people about trades? Sure. I try to talk to people on a semi-constant basis. Is there anything imminent? No. I don’t look at it and say we are going to make a trade. Do I anticipate that we are going to try to tweak things? Yeah, that’s the way I work. I think I’ve made a lot of trades that have helped the hockey teams I’ve been involved with simply because I don’t care if I help the other team. There are some guys that want to [fleece] you every time they talk to you. If we are toward the deadline and there was a team that we were tied with for seventh or eighth in the conference, would I be hesitant? Yeah. If it’s not that situation, I don’t care. The reality is trying to get better than 29 teams and in the conference better than 14 teams. Do I care about helping another team? Not if it accomplishes what we are tying to do. We’ll keep talking.
