Stupid if Boston does it. It's not like Letang is going to put them over the hump, they're in the Finals.

No deal for the Bruins. I don't think they have the cap space to sign Letang long term. The Pens would also want a little extra added & I don't think it's worth it for the Bruins.

Letang sucks at defense. Makes Mike Green look good.

**** no. Letang's a Norris finalist now, we're a contender now, and we have defense prospects out the yin-yang.

Letang is a Norris nominee.. Hamilton is a prospect, a great one, but still a prospect. The difference between the two is way more than a 3rd.

Boston would want nothing to do with Letang, especially at the cost of Dougie.

Bruins would need to add more than a 3rd. MAybe Hamilton + Koko + 3rd ... Although I don't see the incentive for the Bruins to pull this off.

Astronomically stupid for Pittsburgh and pointless for Boston. Even if Letang sucks defensively, Pittsburgh still has plenty of high-end defensive prospects.

Chara declining/retiring in the near future will change that, so looking to acquire and lock up a young top pairing defenseman wouldn't be a bad idea. Not sure Letang is the guy, but it's not like the Bruins are loaded with defensemen who can put up 60 points a season.

Boston wouldn't do it, not only are they already a contending team but I doubt they want to use the cap space or give up Hamilton for a rental.

For everyone that keeps mentioning that Chara is declining- sure, he may be getting slightly slower but even at this rate, he'll still be a legitimate #1A dman in this league moving forward.

I'd pass

Letang is a good player but we could use the cheap ELC. No way we can keep Pev/Kelly or Horton and Letang too haha

^ This is the latest myth being spread about Letang. To be clear, the only aspects of Letang's game that are "elite" are his 5 on 5 point production and his skating. His largest area of struggle is not in his own end, but rather on the PP. On the PP, the extra time/space often lulls Letang into complicating would-be simple plays and making bone headed plays. In his own end, Letang is "good." He's not great, and he's certainly not bad. He has a very active stick, he is surprisingly physical for his size. His positioning is mediocre, but his skating ability often allows him to stay in plays when his default positioning isn't perfect. This notion that Letang "sucks" at defense is purely a myth.

So your saying the Bruins need to acquire Dougie Hamilton?

Ok, check.

But it's so much easier to classify every offensive defensive you don't watch on a regular basis as "bad defensively".

So you think Hamilton is already a Norris candidate who is able to put up a 60 point season.

Ok, check.

Letang was -6 in the bruins series. Sounds pretty bad.

Krug will most likely be a poor mans Letang and will be hidden on the third pairing. Dumb for us to trade someone with as much size and upside as dougie at such a young age.

No he quoted someone saying that the Bs should look to lock up a young top pairing defenseman for when chara declines or retires. Hamilton is just that. He was on pace for 31 points as a 19 year old with limited minutes and limited PP time. Just give him a few years and let him grow into that 6 ft 6 frame. Kids a gem.

Who judges players based on one series? Besides all of HF, I mean.

Keeping Hamilton works out well for the Bruins both now and in the future. I don't see the need for them to add Letang and the salary he's going to want plus give up assets for him to boot.

This.

Plus Hamilton won't be demanding $7 million for a good while. If Letang was so amazing you would think Pens fans would be wanting to keep him, instead I see his name in just about every insane trade proposal under the Sun.

I'd take Hamilton over Letang, Cap being a huge reason.

Not everyone judges a player like that.

BTW the second part of your quote would also include you since you're in here also
