Let's be real about that.

Also, no faith in Nathan Beaulieu?
That's where his girlfriend and baby are, he's building a house there. Maybe I should rephrase it and say it would likely be his #1 choice.

And I'd assume any deal regarding Letang would have to include Petry heading the other way. Also Fistric and Peckham are both unlikely to be resigned. So if a trade were to go down Edmonton's depth chart would likely be:

Klefbom / Letang
Smid / J Schultz
N Schultz / Belov

See, here's the thing. In a Letang trade, I think Shero would want one of Klefbom or Schultz in return.
