If Letang wants to walk away and sign for the biggest deal on the market he can...Karlsson couldn't do that. That's worth at least $500k per year. Throw in the fact that the guy will have spent the bulk of this contract being grossly underpaid and...yeah, Letang will score a big contract. I don't think it will be ridiculous, but $7 million a year for 8 years should be expected to get it done.

As for what his place is in the league...Letang lacks the consistency to be a top 5 defender in this league, but he's very safely within the top 10. I don't think I need to go into depth about how much top 10 defenders make when they have UFA status. If we don't pay him, someone else will.
