Pittsburgh

Kris Letang or James Neal + Isles choice of any 3 of (whatever D prospect they want)/(whatever D prospect they want)/(1st round pick)/(1st round pick)


Don't think Penguins fans will like this, but I also don't think a lot of people are going to be ready for the way Tavares will rocket out of the gate the second games start. Guy's ready to have his name start getting (commonly) mentioned in the same breath as Stamkos, at the bare minimum.

Hell, I'm in the minority, but I think he was the 2nd best player in hockey to play 71 games last season (which is to say I don't think he was better than Malkin, Crosby or Datsyuk, assuming Dats doesn't get old fast at least, but that's the end of my list of guys better than JT).
