This doesn't mean he's done.
I don't think he's going to get Bouwmeester here, or Pronger, or any other big name.
But I wouldn't be surprised if he'd go after a top4 D.
I also think he went after Metropolit as a preventive move. I'm sure he'll be peeking his nose in to see how much a big C a la Jokinen/Antropov/Tkachuk might cost.
If they're asking too much, Metropolit would become the plan B until Lang comes back if he does.

I don't think he's done in the sense that he's 100% done and can go on vacation until after deadline, but he clearly doesn't want to give up too much so that's why he most likely said he wont be doing moves.

Dandy should be going, unless he's giving a regular spot. So I wouldn't be surprised to see a few minor moves.
