Why wouldn't you get much in return for Letang? Top 10 dmen aren't traded very often. You would absolutely get a very good return for him. In the even he had to be traded, we would be okay to take a top 4 roster dman on a lesser cap hit, top 6 forward prospect, and a 1st round pick (for example). Despres, Martin, and Nisky can fill in to replace him by committee and Pouliot will be 2 more years off after we trade him. Losing him would hurt, but not nearly as much as Malkin.
