I'm not Yzerman, so I obviously don't know, but we can guess that the Flyers, Lightning, and Avalanche (currently the 2-4 seeded teams) would be more interested in serious upgrades to their D at this point than taking yet another forward piece. So the potential for a deal is there. What kind of deal do people want to see?
IMO if Avs miss on Jones, they'd still happily take Drouin, Nate or Barkov. Same with Tampa, BPA. Tampa already has one promising D coming of shoulder surgery, Koekkoek. Yzerman surely isn't the one to rush this kind of things.
Statsny may walk or get traded. Only Avs management knows what they'll do with ROR.
