"Geez, half the time, you're texting the guy sitting right at the table next to you," Yzerman said. "You can do that from anywhere. Whether we're doing it remotely or live, I think it has no bearing. You're going to do what you're going to do regardless. Believe it or not, it's not like we just wander around the room, kind of looking for somebody, and open up the raincoat and sell them a watch or something like that. There is a bit of a plan to it all, believe it or not."
"I personally like doing the draft remotely, albeit the second day was kind of a death march for everyone," Yzerman said. "We’re all on the floor, we’re kind of packed at our table, there’s not a lot of room, there’s a lot of distractions. I like doing it remotely and got used to it."
