If I were Tampa, I'd probably go for the BPA, and then worry about making moves later to balance the roster. Or, at the very least, I'd try to extort some return from the Isles (or whoever is drafting at #2) and then move down and take Hedman.
The likes of Gilbert? You make Gilbert sound like not that great an asset.

Your talking about a man who is top 30 in scoring with a positive even clearance.

Look at the top 30. How many are at least +5. 13.

1 Mike Green
3 Brian Rafalski
4 Mark Streit
5 Dan Boyle
6 Nicklas Lidstrom
9 Shea Weber
13 Dennis Wideman
14 Zdeno Chara
16 Rob Blake
18 Duncan Keith
22 Tom Gilbert
23 Kimmo Timonen
27 Filip Kuba

Nice group!

I'd say that Nilsson, with his craptastic season!
Scoring more than the other team wins.

40 RW outscore competition. Nilsson is one of them.
40 LW outscore competition. Cogliano is one of them. How fast is this Kid.

Yeah, reject that proposal Milbury.

That pick would never get that much. Huge overpayment.
