i would like to see letang put together one solid season of good/great defensive play before giving him a huge deal.

i question whether he can be the #1 d-man on a cup winning team. too "all over the place" defensively right now. his actual contributions to winning hockey games are less than his talent would suggest.

pens were obviously terrible defensively these past playoffs, and the teams #1 d-man deserves a huge part of that blame. its not just on martin and fleury.

if he can put together a very good all-around season this year, i will be fine with giving him a big deal. if not, i dunno what i'd do.

basically, letang in his current form is not leading any teams to the promised land. play a smart, safer game while still making his of his talents like doughty did this postseason.
