Why would the Pens give up their #1 defenseman at all? I'm still completely confused by this idea.

We scored more than anybody without Sid last year, were monumentally terrible defensively when it mattered, and yet some people think it's prudent to trade away Letang for another scorer and leave Paul Martin as our #1. It's baffling. Whatever else is added, we become a worse team.
