Good deal, but how many centers does Columbus need?

Matthew 11-08-2011 06:28 PM

Either one OR BOTH would be okay by me. This would be step 2 of a 3-part process to fix the defense.

Somehow I managed to miss that post. Thanks!

Depth center with two-way upside.

I'll take a crumb tho. Next.

Penguins fan here.

Letestu played great for us last year when called up then earned his spot and stayed for most of the year. Injuries plague us so he was vital to our team. Last part of the year he was the only center that could effectively play with Neal and Kovalev...so I guess you could say he became our 1C.

He's a wee bit slow with his first couple steps but he's got good sense and he's great at faceoffs.

This year, he was simply the odd man out. Its not that he didn't play well...its just that we got over crowded at center and the team felt he had the highest trade value. A 4th for Letestu is a very good deal for you guys. He's a good player with a lot of room for improvement. Not only that but he's got a great cap hit.

I wish him the very best!

Boy, Letestu must have really pissed Ray Shero off. Whatever he did, it must have been really, really bad.

CBJSprague24 11-08-2011 06:38 PM

14 goals, 13 assists for 27 points in 64 games.

Goooo onnnn...

Might as well move Pahlsson while we're at it.

BluejacketNut 11-08-2011 06:40 PM

They must have been getting bored with the current AHL rotation, so figured they'd add another to spice things up

JacketFanInFL 11-08-2011 06:40 PM

This will likely be a net salary dump with revenues looking bleak.

Letestu will fit in at C if/when we trade Vermette/Brassard for a pick.

If it is a salary dump and they're preparing for the season's suck, Howson and Arnie are safe.

Id do it. Letestu (By some Pens fans sayings) say hes a good bottom 6er thats good at checking and good on faceoffs... a Cheaper and younger pahlsson perhaps?

Hopefully a fix (by that I mean, hope we trade one for a Dman.)

Great so cbj receive another center who doesn't score. Letestu 11 games played this year, 0 goals, 1 assist, -6. What a great move!!!!! This is really going to get the team turned around.

Fro 11-08-2011 06:48 PM

i know why...from mains...

Look at the stats for the previous year. They're a little more encouraging.
