nope. Hedman may not be good for some time. Who knows how long it will take for him to develop and fulfill his potential. Also name a UFA defensmen who's better than Ranger we can sign cheap. We still have to sign Karsums, Lashoff, Smaby, Ramo, and others. Also I don't think Ranger will ask for that much.

In this trade, do the Lightning get potentially the best player in the deal. Yes, but that doesn't matter if our D is going to stink for a couple years anyway and we are stuck going nowhere. The way I see it, our top 6 is fine. We have Vinny and Marty, and Stammer is going to get better. Prospal and Malone are also fine players. After our top two lines, the scoring falls off to nothing. We don't need a dominating top 6, we just need more scoring help throughout our team so all the goals aren't coming from 5 people. Filatov is going to be a great player, but we are not in a situation where we can lose a good defender and still expect to get better. If we were a little more assured about Lashoff or we knew Hedman (if we even draft him) could jump in and be this years Doughty, than yes you make this trade. Also who knows what Tyrell will turn into?
