Think Nashville could have got more however, surprised they weren't able to get at least Detroit's 1st in the deal considering the only other options available to Yzerman was to overpay for a Bernier or Schneider

Look at what "successful" Nashville back-ups have gone on to do. Its not a great track record, let alone getting dropped in behind a brutal defense. Stevie Y could be regretting this move 20 games into the season.
