The Letang deal is interesting because it still isn't completed. The rumour is that the hold up is that Letang wants a guarantee that he won't be traded before his NTC kicks in.

A signed player, even at $7.25m, is worth more than an unsigned player. If that is the hold up on the deal, then the plan must have been to keep him for his final cheap year and then trade him at the draft next year. Otherwise why wouldn't they give him the guarantee?
