As for who can play PP, PK and eat up 30 minutes/game. Chara, Weber, Suter, Pietrangelo for sure. Karlsson is on another tier offensively. Can't fathom what he'd do here.
I'm not arguing Letang isn't worth 7 mil. But a #1 D-man who can carry a pairing, QB a PP and dominate in front of the net? Nope.
I think we need a more descriptive term than "#1 D-man." He is, in my mind, without a doubt a #1 D-man. He can play 30 minutes, he anchors the blue line, and is their best, most irreplaceable defender by a wide margin.
Now, is he Super-Dee-Duper-Jinkies-Guys Elite? Maybe not.
