Veteran D-Man to Tampa

If Hedman does and probably will drop to Tampa at #2 would Tampa try to maybe acquire a veteran defenceman for him to take Hedman under his ropes and teach him the NA game. I'm an Oilers fan so I'm not very familiar with Tampa's trading chips so fix this propasal to your liking and feel free to add your own. I feel like Jason Smith could really teach him a thing or two about work ethic and leadership and help him through the ups and downs because as I witnessed first hand when he was in Edmonton he is a leader and a warrior.

To Tampa:
Jason Smith

To Ottawa:
Jussi Jokinen
Riku Helenius

Tampa gives up Jokinen based on him coming up on being an RFA while Helenius seems to me has been passed by Kari Ramo and Dustin Tokarski as well as having Mike Smith locked up for another two years.

Tell me what you think.
