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.
Add in that he's not a PP QB and I fully endorse this post.
