This year will be the year that Letang is most untouchable to the Pens. Our defense is sketchy at best, and Letang gives us an elite or near-elite defenseman that we can build around for the time being. Losing Letang this year would make our defense look like this:

Martin - Niskanen
Orpik - Despres
Engelland - Lovejoy

bleh city

Trading Letang for Eberle+ would give us an amazing young winger, but we would get scored on about 6 times a game. In 3+ years our prospects will be NHL ready and Letang will become much more expendable (as long as he resigns).

I would love Paajarvi but the asking price is high and I wouldn't want to give up one of our top 6 defense prospects. Maybe something around Strait+.
