I don't think so Jay (obviously ).

Two top prospects, without double dipping in a position from:

Ellis, Blum, Josi, Beck, Klasen, Watson, and Pickard

That stills leaves us crazy deep on the blueline, two solid goaltenders in Dekanich and Lindback and several good young forwards (including Wilson, Hornqvist and potentially O'Reilly).

By the time that Iginla leaves (if that happens, not necessarily so if the team is successful and he'd only be 35 at contract end), Nashville has plenty of opportunity to draft replacements.

Small price to pay to me.
