It's a legitimate concern that Letang wouldn't put up great numbers without two of the best forwards in the game to feed the puck to. The fact that the Pens can't find more decent wingers doesn't imply those two don't inflate their linemates numbers. Goalscorers are just always at a premium.
Dupuis put up 59 points last year playing with Jordan Staal and Steve Sullivan. Chris Kunitz's best full season was last year with Malkin and Neal but it was only 1 goal better than his best season in Anaheim. I'd back Letang to put up 50 points on almost all the teams in the league, probably closer to 60 on the top teams.
