In his own end, Letang is "good." He's not great, and he's certainly not bad. He has a very active stick, he is surprisingly physical for his size. His positioning is mediocre, but his skating ability often allows him to stay in plays when his default positioning isn't perfect. This notion that Letang "sucks" at defense is purely a myth.
I have some news for you, people have been saying that Letang is suspect defensively since he played his first NHL game.
