As nice as it would be for you to have Letang in TB, it absolutely does not start with him before SteveY will listen.
He's 36 years old and before Stamkos broke out into the 50 goal scorer he is, Marty's numbers were on the decline. And now this year, while Stamkos is tied for 2nd in the league in points, and is 1st in goals, St. Louis isn't even on pace to score a point-per-game.
Once he leaves TB, you have no guarantee he'll keep putting up 90 point seasons for the next three years, and Pittsburgh would be stupid to trade one of the top 5 defensemen in the league (who's only 24) for anything less than sure thing, and they sure wouldn't add to it.
