Then start thinking about what sort of deal the Preds could get. You're not going to get a Doughty, Malkin, Crosby, Ovechkin, or Backstrom straight up. They'd have to take a package. I figure they would want a proven young D that can play big minutes and some combination of a top six forward/high pick(s)/good prospect(s).

Like I said, I think Letang is the ideal centre piece of a package Preds would want. If Shero ever got THAT done... Jesus this board would crash, Jags would demand we convert Weber to RW, and every WalMart within 100 miles of Philadelphia would run out of tinfoil.
