I'd want my team to trade for a player like Letang because I want him on my team long term. 1 year of Letang is 1 year to convince him of the vision you are trying to build with your organization. If you don't feel like you can do that, well, your effed.
Yes, teams would be willing to do that. But only at a comfortable price. Being a new town and new teammates there is no guarantee he signs with the new team vs shop himself to the other 28 at season's end. An acquiring team does not have the inside track the Pens would have (assuming they could afford him.) That's why he won't bring full value under these circumstances.

No way from Anaheim. Gibson and Vatanen are just too valuable for us and dealing Ryan in a deal like this doesn't make much sense.
