He's only 22 years old.

The question is if the Pens organization believes if he has more upside and where is his development going. He has the skills to eventually be a Gonch replacement....the signs are there, but there are some details he has to work on (aka shot, faster passes on the PP).

A twist is that this year he has developed his D side quite a bit...pretty impressive that he's considered part of the shutdown duo on the Pens. He doesn't really look that big, but at 6' 200lbs, he isn't exactly small....and he could potentially put on 10-15 lbs.

I don't think Letang is stupid and thinks he can cash-out now....I see him staying with the Pens at this stage.

He's probably looking for a $3.5M - 4 year deal, and the Pens want to lock him at $3M over 4. I bet he'd take $3M at 2 years, and I'd be happy with that.

Just speculation on my part.
