I am really sure Letang will be traded to someone tomorrow. Anaheim would be a good fit as well for Gibson Etem and a pick.
I can see a LeTang trade resulting in the perception that both sides lost. With less offensive firepower in Toronto (than in Pitt), offense might not come as easily for LeTang.
Likewise for Pittsburgh, there's no guarantee that the acquired players will produce offensively like LeTang. They may be better defensively, but that might be noticed less if there's an offensive fall off from the LeTang trade.
