JTG.. you know I usually agree with you and at least respect you are making valid points, but it's simple here. Letang is a #1 and does so much for the Pens. I won't argue point totals. You know that doesn't even come into my mind. He's a legit #1 and I somehow find myself wondering how this discussion is even coming to be. If you ranked him in a tier system, he'd probably be in the 2nd tier while guys like Chara/Weber take over #1.
I mean think about it. Didn't Jordan Staal just get 10 years 80M? Didn't Karlsson just get 6.5 per? Look what the market is doing. He's worth a huge chunk of change to keep. Paying a defender 5M to get Martin, Z, someone like that is not worth it when you can have Letang for 2M more.
