Fowler, Rakell and Ducks 1st for an extended Letang
J Schultz, Hartikinen and Oilers 1st for an extended Letang
Faulk, Rask and Canes 1st for an extended Letang
Cowen, Noesen, Puempel and Sens 1st for an extended Letang
Gardiner, Scrivens, Biggs and Leafs 1st for an extended Letang

Those are (imo) realistic returns for Letang. Make your proposals similar in value to those.
...the list you just put together isn't the same as the return you're saying you expect.

Someone like Cam Fowler, or Justin Faulk are not "replacement top-4 D", they are both top pairing defensemen for their team, with the upside to be more than that. I won't speak for Carolina fans, but Anaheim would definitely say no.

You're a curious one, aren't you?
