I would only do this if Edmonton could talk to Letang first and make sure he will resign with them (not sure if allowed or not)

I would also hope that Pitt would prefer MPS or Marcinin+ instead of Petry..
Oilers are my second favorite team, so I know their roster quite well.

I know MacT said in his end of season PC that he wants more foot speed on the blueline and guys who can get the puck out quickly and skate the puck to open ice, which is exactly what Letang does. So there would obviously be interest there, no denying that.

I like Petry and he has potential, but if Shero is moving Letang, he will want back a good roster player and a high end prospect or pick. Petry struggled some this year and the Pens will need a more proven asset.

It would have to be Smid + the 7 overall, with perhaps some small pieces going each way. Smid is a hell of a player and his cap hit will be very appealing to Shero as well.

You have unreasonable fans on each side, but in the end this is a fair deal that helps both teams.
