The Hedman/Ehrhoff swap does bad things for TB's defense. Indeed, it ends up a lot like Buffalo is now (with the part of "no more Hedman" being played by a struggling Tyler Myers). Miller's pretty awesome, but he can't single-handedly push Buffalo to conference relevance right now as things are. How would that be any different for a TB cup run?

Still not a good idea.
