No and what is their source?

I'm on the fence about retaining Letang, I'd love to have him as part of the core but there is just no way Shero can justify paying him more than $3-$3.5M per year, and even that is pushing it in my mind. He's talented, yes, has great potential, yes, but is just too damn inconsistent and sporadic offensively. If he truly believes he's worth $3.5M+ then I hope management plays hardball and he'll realize quickly that no other team is going to cough up a 1st and 3rd for his services.

A two year, maybe $2.5M-ish deal would be in the best interest of both parties, let him grow his game a little more and maybe he'll be worth that big commitment or maybe he'll continue to struggle and we part ways.
