The Lightning have over 26M in cap space this off-season. The only MUST re-sign player is Stamkos. They will likely bring back Purcell as well, and will probably be interested in bringing back Bergenheim, Lundin and maybe Roloson. None of those players will make significant money. Never, in any scenario, will they be in a position to even consider having to move Hedman to make space for Stamkos.

Tampa laughs in the face of MDZ + Girardi for Hedman as well.
You have jumped to an erroneous conclusion in an effort to criticize something said by someone with whom you disagree.

It is obvious they will make space.
it was and I HAD repeat HAD assumed they would be under constraints to do so.
However, after placing a post at TBL forum seeking input, they advised that yeah, while they'd already heard this, it was not necessarily true.
They DO have enough other options to do all this and sign Stamkos.

As for "laughs in the face...", check out the post.
While most considered Hedman an asset too precious to be swapped for even value, and not with breakdown of every facet of possible deal variations, an honest broker did say he considered Girardi + MDZ "fair".
