Pens get a young replacement top-4 D in Schultz, a young winger prospect in Hartikinen and a high pick. Oilers get a Norris finalist to help them break their playoff slump.
That might be the worse proposal I have ever seen.
The 7th overall + Hartikinen is fair value.
Justin Schultz is a ridiculous addition that makes it a horrible overpayment.
It wouldn't be a deal for a signed Letang anyways, as Letang cant sign a contract until after the 2013 draft.
Absolutley ridiculous. Your evaluation of Letang is simply terrible. He's a UFA to be asking for 7M+. Sure he's a Top 10 Dman in the NHL today. But he's also a UFA in 1 year, and the Penguins likely will not be resigning him. His value isn't anywhere close to what you think it is.
