I'm not sure if you can do that with pkg-get.  There's also pkgutil,
which also downloads and installs packages, but has additional
functionality.  You could use the --nomod option.  It'll tell you
which packages pkgutil would download.  That would be a partial list
of dependencies -- this would only list the dependencies that aren't
already installed.

There's also the --stream option that can build a package stream (that
is, a .pkg file) which contains your designated package together with
all its dependencies.  You could use this function to build the .pkg
file and then examine its contents.
