Depends though, who has the leverage here? Can Letang assume another team will fork over the $ he apparently wants via offer-sheet? Which teams would be willing to cough up a 1st and a 3rd knowing that anything less would likely just be matched? I like Letang and hope he stays but, frankly, a two year deal with a lower cap hit may be in the best interests of both sides. Actually, if Shero plays hardball and Letang's camp can't find any takers, that may be the only option for him.
