Yeah... I have a lot of faith in Letang... but he took a visible step back this year. Going into the season I had absolutely no reservations about Gonchar potentially leaving, since I figured Letang's development would continue on the same track it had been. But man... ugly year. You're right, though... with both he and Goligoski... it's all confidence.

It totally boggled my mind that the coaching staff started to emphasize him practicing his point shot on the powerplay with something like two weeks left in the regular season when he had been biffing opportunities all... year... long.
