He's not the guy you put against the other teams top forwards to shut them down like those other guys. His all around game just isn't where it needs to be to be paid like an elite Dman.

The Flyers just signed 35 year old defenseman who's significantly worse in offense, defense, physicality, and playoff experience for 5.25 mil per. How you figure Letang is only worth "maybe 5.8 or 6.0m" given that standard is beyond me.
