If Letang is moved and no one else is brought in the pens defense will look like this below. If he is moved i wouldn't be shocked to see a D man returned in the trade or signing someone like Scuderi to play top 4 minutes.
Staal would only sign extension with Carolina. Prevented deal with Coyotes from being consummated officially.
The Staal situation had nothing to do with the Yandle rumor. Shero was talking to Phoenix about trading Michalek to them. Rossi jumped the gun and automatically assumed shero was trying to get Yandle to play with Letang. He was wrong
I hope it's not true that Shero and Letang's agent haven't discussed an extension; meanwhile Shero has been in contact with Dupuis' agent.
They have to keep Tanger, a lot of these allegedly great dmen prospects are years away from playing on the pens. Is it really worth losing Letang over $1 million a year? Thank god we have Fleury wasting $5 million to sit on the bench. Tanner Glass is one of the worst players in the league and he makes over a million a season. Kennedy is making $2 million to suck. Orpik was horrible during the regular season. The pens have their fair share of underachievers, dump them, not Letang.
