Was he RFA or UFA? That seems like a JvR type of deal. Not quite worth it now but should be for the majority of the contract.

I don't know much about him, but the Coburn contract popped into my head. Not worth it when signed, but you hope he turns out as expected and it becomes a bargain.

RFA, he's 23. He scored 16 points (5G, 11A) in 52 games in 2011-2012 and 18 points (5G, 13A) in 48 games this year. He was named the MVP, the Best Defender, and the Media All-Star Team at the World Championship's this summer for Switzerland. He put up 9 points (4G, 5A) in 10 games during that tournament.

It seems like they are paying him for what they think he'll turn out to be and using that WC as justification.

Word is that PK Subban is going to be named the Norris Trophy winner during the Stanley Cup Finals.

So, at least Subban is winning it. Letang doesn't even deserve to be in the running for that.

I agree. Whenever I saw him in games he didn't really strike me as being among the best in the league.

They need to divide it into Norris and Orr, so you have the good defensive guys getting their due and the people who pile on points/offense can get theirs.

Why not make one for best 2-way d-man too? What would that be called? The Lidstrom? I got nothing.

That will end well if Stevens has learned nothing.

I'm pretty sure that would still be Orr, haha. 130+ points twice, scoring 46 goals in a season, all while being arguably the best defensive guy on the ice isn't shabby.

Somehow at his age I doubt he can "learn" a whole new personality...

He is going to cost Montreal a ton of money to resign. Subban and his agent have no reason to settle for less than 8 years, $56 million.

That two year bridge deal doesn't seem so smart now.

Also, extension talks w/ Letang expected to begin this month. He seeks five-to-eight-year term, full no-move. #Pens believe $7-8M per sought

hilarious

I hope they give it to him and end up in cap hell with $25 million tied up in three guys. None of whom would be confused for iron men.

I think they pretty much have to do it. I think he's overrated defensively, but who else do they have? It's not like letting him go improves their situation.

How bad would the rest of their team get though? Cap going down, 25M between 3 players... Hell.


They should do it.
