Maybe on a 2 year deal you could get that price but if you think a 22 year old dman with his skills would sign for less than $4 million a year for 5 years you don't know much about how contracts work. If Gonchar leaves Letang would be full time on the #1 PP all the time and his #'s would increase big time with that. Letang could very easily be in the 40's and even low 50's next season with that #1 PP duty if Gonchar exits and he still is not in his prime yet. His agent would have to be a num nut to let him sign a long term deal under $4 million a year.
