letang might be a good #2 for phaneuf.

1st 2013 + matt finn + kulemin for letang.

pitts always had a hard-on for kulemin, so this trade might be attractive to them... (keep in mind, matt finn was a projected mid 1st rd pick in last year's draft but dropped to us in the second round)


OR

gardiner + kulimen for letang

thoughts?

That's no where near quality value for Letang.

Avs really aren't in a position to trade EJ, they should build around him.

Is it fair to assume that the Penguins would want a cheap young scoring winger, a goaltending prospect (Avs have 4 with NHL potential) and a young defenseman who could fill in for Letang down the road?

Personally I think the Avs would behighly interested in Letang and I think they could look to move Paul Stastny to get assets that would be attractive to the Pens.

Why would they trade Letang and keep Fleury?

Tyson Barrie + Calvin Pickard + 1st 2014 would be something that might work for both teams.

1) The Penguins are loaded with good defense prospects, and have literally 2 goalie prospects in the organization - both of whom were drafted last year. It's much easier for them to replace Letang than Fleury.

2) Shero said doesn't feel he can replace Fleury's regular season production with the options that are out there. Despite his playoff implosions, Fleury's been a workhorse for them in the regular season.

3) I firmly believe that part of Gilles Meloche resigning as goalie coach was that Fleury gets 1 year with the new coach before the organization dumps him.

Would Pittsburgh consider a straight 1 for 1 swap for Alex Edler? Letang is likely the better player, but it is certainly close. Letang is no doubt better offensively (although Edler is no slouch either) where as Edler is more physical and is slightly better defensively. The value for Pittsburgh here is more or less in the contract. If Letang is asking for 7mil per year and Pittsburgh can't afford that, Edler is a comparable player at a comparable age signed longterm for 2mil less per season.

The advantage for Vancouver is three fold. First, it helps create a shake-up without sacrificing our defensive depth. Second, we are extremely deep on the left side and weak up the left; this trade would help correct that. And third, we could use a right handed PP QB to help solidify what seems to be a stale PP these past 2 years.

Just a thought, it could work out well for both teams under the right conditions. As a Canuck fan I wouldn't be willing to add much, and I would want to know that we could get Letang locked up before hand.

maybe a deal centered around Edler for Letang, but it doesn't make sense from Vancouver's standpoint.

one of the offers in here was Edler + Kassian/Jensen + 1st 2014 + conditional 3rd 2014 (becomes 4th if Letang doesn't re-sign). that could be the possible return Shero may ask for, but i don't see either side getting a deal like that done.

No. It really wouldn't. Pittsburgh has tons of D prospects and Pickard is meh. Would rather have an established guy. The 1st is alright.

If I'm Shero, I'd start with Gardiner/Gunnarson, Kulemin and a 1st. Even then it's iffy.

It wouldn't be bad but I think some additions by both sides, in the form of draft picks, would need to be done to even it out.

Edler would get half what letang will in a trade.

The issue in Pitts is salary.

What about:

Glencross
Giordano
+ (maybe their own 1st or even Tanguay if there is any interest)

Gives the Pens two great players in their prime, signed on the cheap. Glencross' is gritty and his greatest skill is getting into scoring positions. He'd put up 30+ goals a year on Pitts with either of Malkin or Crosby. If the Pens are looking for a cheap top 4 defenceman, Giordano is one of the best bang for the buck. He's also got a cannon of a shot that could help replace Letang's offence.

San Jose's beat writer, David Pollak, is speculating that the Sharks might be among the teams interested. While I'd love Letang in teal, I just don't see what the Sharks could offer. Couture and Burns are off the table and their prospect pool is essentially empty aside from Hertl and Nieto. I guess Pavelski++ could be a starting point, but I doubt the Penguins want another center.

So build around Letang instead. Maybe the Pens could throw in another D depending on what else the Avs would add.

If you don't consider contracts. Edler is locked up at 5, and that's a steal. I'd be willing to add to Edler, but wouldn't do more than Edler + 1st.

I wouldnt mind this deal, really like Glencross but pens are going to ask for one of the other 2 first rounders you have.

Letang to Philly would be hysterical.

Talbot, Gustafsson and 11th overall.
