The contract that hurts them the most right now is probably Ryan Malone's at a cap hit of 4.5 for the next 5 years
They better wish Ohlund stays healthy. And then there's Hedman. A lot of people are putting the same early expectations on him than people did on Stamkos last season. The kid won't be dominant from the getgo, forget about that.
Tampa will be dangerous, in a year or two from now. But I don't think they'll make the playoffs just yet. They've upgraded, but their starting point is the bottom of the league, there's nowhere else to go but up.
