Anywhere above $3M is an overpayment for Letang at this point.

He's a good skater, makes a nice first pass, good wheels - but he still makes bad decisions, especially in the offensive zone. He's just a slightly-above average top 4 d-man at this point.

On a cash-strapped team like the Pens, you can't get into the habit of overpaying for young players based on "potential".

Shero overpaid for potential with the Staal contract, but just about every other contract he's signed has been good.
