Salary cap says hello. That and we need a defensive guy....not Letang. That and JVR is not available.

Letangs contract scares me, its' scared me from day one even before he's blown ass this season.


I'm not saying I'd do this for sure, but if it was the best offer I'd take it.

The Hurricanes seem to have been producing just fine without Alexander Semin in the lineup and may still be interested in a PMD.

Something around Semin for Letang could be a starting point.

Never going to happen. The 'piece' would have to be younger and 'non semin'. I dont dislike the guy, but that's just reality.

So I really don't want to help the Pens, but how about Vanek for Letang? fills both teams needs.

UFA. Won't happen. If they deal letang its going to be for someone like eberle. Young with years remaining on at worst a decent deal.

Don't like any proposals ITT, except maybe Eberle

Also, Letang has a limited NTC where he can list teams he doesn't want to go to

Would be surprised if Edmonton wasn't on his list

Knowing how conservative the Pens are with their franchise players, I don't see Shero moving Letang in reality anyway

Wow the offers here are terrible. There has not been 1 enticing offer for Letang in this thread. Players that will cost to get Letang (using teams posted here):

Gardiner and JVR for Letang
O'Reilly and a 1st for Letang
Eberle and a 2nd for Letang
Okposo and Hamonic for Letang

Other teams (like Carolina or Winnipeg) don't have the pieces to get him or don't need him.

That offer is straight ass. A top-6 W, 2 nobodies and a 2nd round pick doesn't equal a top-10 D and a 3rd line winger? On what planet is that fair? If Colorado wants Letang, it's going to take either MacKinnon (they probably wouldn't do) or ROR.

The Semin for Letang proposal makes the most sense. Carolina and Pittsburgh have made good trade partners before and could do so again here.

After this year, it does make some sense. Both salaries are close, and both players have both vicious hot and cold streaks.

You're delusional. Letang has looked absolutely terrible this year. Also you don't seem to be taking into account the massive contract that Letang brings with him. He's not worth what you think he is.

Based on this, you seem to be overvaluing Letang. You say he's "top ten", but his defensive play certianly isn't "top ten", he is a good offensive d-man, but has some warts to his game that need to be considered. Plus, that contract is pretty hefty and doesn't do any favors to his value. O'Reilly and a 1st is too much. JVR and a pick should be good value, no need to add in another solid piece like Gardiner. I wouldn't add anything on top of Eberle at this point either.

He's a RFA, not a UFA, there's a big difference.

You're vastly overrating Letang.
