Meanwhile, you're getting 2 NHL stars in Vanek and Miller while also getting a very good top 4 defenseman in Ehrhoff.
Give Hedman two or three years and he is the best player in this deal. This is the first year he is allowed to play his game as a TWD, the last years he was forced to play DD because our D was laughable.
Tampa would get the save return, but the one that doesn't fit in and which could end up being the worser part.
Malone has a lot of value for Tampa, but doesn't have the same on the open market, Salo plays the hell out of his old ass and plays brilliant with Hedman. Pouliot is a great third liner in Tampa, so would play in your top 6. And Conacher (as mentioned often in this thread from guys that actually follow him closely) will surprise
everybody at the end of the season and for the next dozen seasons. He has the same attitude to suceed as St.Louis and learns all he needs from the best undersized player in the NHL.
Oh yes and Lindback is a project with great upside.
Tampa doesn't need/ can't use Vanek and that's why this proposal is awful for Tampa !!!!!!!!
