Letang will get north of 7 mill. That's his starting point.

2. He isn't lacking in leverage. There is a reason Shero has been using first rounders on defensemen, including puck movers, seemingly every single year but one. Cause they knew this day could come and they needed to be ready. There is a glut of high level Dmen in the system exactly because this was forseen. Either something south of 7 will happen or else we will start using that talent we have been drafting. We've got leverage. I'd love to keep Letang but this isn't life or death. It might be for one year but not beyond that.
Everyone knows that Letang will end up getting traded, Shero isn't going to fleece anyone on this. He either resigns Letang or lets Letang walk next season for nothing. Letang has the leverage, not Shero.
