While "packed" in terms of bodies, it's not particularly packed in terms of talent. Whitmore's an option since he's a known commodity, but it seemed like he was looking to get back to the Portland area where his new wife is from and where he was a very involved volunteer.

It will likely mean an opportunity for someone else (Flynn at the moment), but it's hard to be optimistic about it at this point.
