I don't think so. Theres no way that over the course of the offseason there wouldn't be heavy interest in Chris F'ing Pronger, and I see no possible way the Ducks would ship him out for a ****** return such as just Lupul and Sbisa. They would have cleared salary elsewhere if it came to that. If we did somehow overpay by one late 1st round pick, then so be it, it was still worth it.
