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.
Going into yesterday's game, Letang didn't have a PP point in the last 20 or so games. Just saying. It would be tough for his agent to argue that he's a future lynchpin of the power play. So far, in his entire career, he has a total of 27 power play points. This season, he has a measly 5.

If he's the PP specialist of the future, they are in big trouble.
