Ask the Penguins when Letang's horrible defensive play was a great contributor to them being swept by Boston.
Disagree about Letang. This is a guy who, just two years ago, was a legitimate Norris candidate. There are other things going on in Pittsburgh. Namely, none of their forwards seem interested in playing defense anymore, like they did just a few years ago. Their defensive structure is a mess and Fleury's turned into a basketcase. Shea Weber would look like a bonehead on that team. You think Letang stands a chance?

I understand what you were arguing. I was pointing out that your argument is limited and meaningless. Sorry.
