The Penguins would be a good trade partner with Edmonton if you truly want a young #1D for your 1st rounder. In my opinion, the Pens would be looking for one or two young forwards/prospects in exchange for Letang in addition to the 1st rounder.
ex: Staal for Sutter, Dumoulin, 8th Overall (Pouliot)
Letang for Top 5-10 Overall, Paajarvi, F/D prospect
I would personally like to keep Letang, but the Penguins could use some EC contracts and young forward depth if Letang doesn't want to re-sign.
This is more just for fun, I am curious if such a deal would work on your end.
1st, Paajarvi and Petry? Helll, I'd probably add our 2014 1st as well.
