Look at the players we have lost in less than 1 year:

Carter, Niiniimaa, Marchant, Cleary , and now probably Comrie.

Yes the arguement about the guys in the dressing room can be made that that is the nucleus. And yes, the guys we got in return are quality. However, losing those 4 guys Carter, Niiniimaa, Marchant, Comrie, is sure to cause some churn and growing pains, no?

Am I the only worried person?
The only player there that we would still need is Niinimaa as we lack a true number one Dman (Brewer isn't until he takes that last step, he's easily an elite #2 Dman).
