IF a team offers a top-10 pick for a potential rental(as good as Letang is), I don't expect much more to be included. I suppose it comes down to what you value more...
Staal got a young 3C, a good prospect and the #8 pick. I expect more for Letang. I'm pretty sure that whomever gets Letang would be confident that he would re-sign/would already have a deal in place, so Letang would get a higher return than Staal.
