I really hope that Letang sitting a few games is going to work out for him down the stretch. I mean, imagine what it must feel like as a young defenseman carving out your niche on the team, playing well, and then you get healthy scratched for three huge games right in the middle of a playoff run. Against the team from his hometown of Montreal, and against two of the Pens biggest rivals in Philly and Washington, one on national TV.
I don't think it will have a negative impact on the kid's confidence though... maybe it will light a fire under his arse???
