TBL gives up: Lecavalier, Malone
TBL gets: Hickey, Gilbert, 5th overall, Blake

LA gives up: Hickey, Teubert, Handzus, 5th overall
LA gets: Lecavalier, Ponikarovsky

TOR gives up: Blake, Ponikarovsky, 3rd
TOR gets: Horcoff, Teubert

EDM gives up: Gilbert, Horcoff
EDM gets: Handzus, Malone, 3rd

Tampa bay gets a young top pairing defenseman with great puck moving abilities in Gilbert, a very solid defensive prospect in Hickey, a 5th overall to draft Schenn as Lecavalier's replacement, and Blake, who at this point is probably upgrade over Malone with a shorter and cheaper contract.

Tampa's top 6 is now

Prospal Stamkos St. Louis
??? Schenn Blake

Not very impressive, BUT,

defensive corps is now

Mesjaros Gilbert
Ranger Hedman
Hickey Lashoff

Los Angeles gets Lecavalier and Ponikarovsky to round out a killer top 6, with Frolov, Kopitar, Brown and Lecavalier, Ponikarovsky and Williams, and the only major part of their current roster they lose is Handzus, who is redundant with Stoll. They'd probably be the most improved team next year.

Edmonton gets rid of Horcoff's albatross contract (probably 2nd worst in the NHL after Redden's) and gets Malone, the type of big mean top 6 forward they are missing, and Handzus, the big shutdown defensive center they are missing.

Toronto takes on an albatross contract with Horcoff, but it doesn't hurt them as much since they're rebuilding, and they get a blue chip defensive prospect in Teubert to really advance the rebuild.

Is this balanced based on what each team gives out and gets in return?

Well, no. I'd rather just get Poni and the 7th for LA's 5th.

Tampa can keep VLC, which I'm sure they would be more than happy to do so.

You probably missed it, since it's only a sticky labeled MUST READ:

The first one was funny, the rest are like movie sequels-- all the promise, none of the fulfillment.

What constitutes outlandish will still be at the moderators' discretion, but any more 4-, 5-, 10- and 30-team proposals will be deleted, with infractions issued.
