Just because the Preds depth players don't get the publicity of big markets doesn't mean we don't have depth. You're also a bit spoiled in Philadelphia.

We are fine with that depth and that balance. FYI, the Preds were 8th in goals for last year. We had the #1 Power Play in the league, so our offense seems to be working all right. Sure, losing Suter hurt our D depth, but trading Weber and getting only Mezaros back on D won't fix that.

The Preds have all kinds of issues. We need a true top line scoring threat, our defense is a bit young, and we lack a true #2 now (though Josi is close), but depth and balance are NOT two of our issues, not to mention the proposed deal would fix neither of them, even if it was. Losing our only top pairind D creates a much bigger hole than you're filling.
