Not to derail the thread, but Pittsburgh has the most impressive group of d prospects even after dealing Morrow, so I think they might let Letang go.

Pens have to lock him up at whatever he wants.
Leafs have 20 mill for 8 players. Sign Malkin for 10, that's 7 players for 10 mill.

Kadri just had a great year and that will cost the leafs. 3.5. Leaves them 6.5 for 6 players. Average 1 mill a player to leave some room for callups. Oh wait, Franson is RFA. He just had great year, too. 3 mill (if not more) for him. 3.5 for 5 players. Yeah... I don't think the Leafs will target Malkin for that price.
