The salary goes without saying. That is there for any good player so that goes without saying. Did they think because they traded for him he would take 5m? Come on. I will be very surprised if Letang does not fetch a tremendous return. I think they will sign him tho if he can take 6.

isn't that between him and Crosby

I doubt you're going to get a big return for him.....a team could sign Streit if he hits the open market for less.

They should be able to get a better deal for him than they got for Staal and they got a nice return in the latter case.
Oh FFS.

Karlsson isn't worth that return and he put PPG numbers over a full season last year. Mike Green wasn't worth a similar return a few seasons ago when he did it twice.

Letang isn't worth either of those pieces from TBL for going PPG in a Lockout-shortened season when he missed a quarter of the games.

I'd put Letang on par with Mike Green. He'd probably get a 2nd rounder at this point.

I didn't say we would. I think we will get a first a prospect and a decent player. Thats my expectation. If its just a pick and a player and no prospect thrn i expect the player to be good. Top 5 defenseman...no...but decent two way guy.

It really depends when he is moved. I think he could fetch quite a haul if he is moved when the finals are over. (I am using Edmonton as reference here because they have a ton of resources in the form of players and prospects, the cap space to sign him and need of a top D-man). I could see them sending Gagner and a 1st plus a prospect this offseason.

If you wait until the trade deadline you get in the situation that only a few teams will be looking to add top players - and usually those deals do not fetch the kind of quality loot you could hope for.

Look at the Gaborik deal or the Bouwmeester deal. A conditional 1st rounder and some decent but not great prospects for Bouwmeester and a good but not great player and some prospects for Gaborik. Obviously after the trade deadline his value would drop tremendously as he would not be able to be moved until the playoffs are over and then only to a team who could try to resign him, that would yield no more than a 3rd or 4th round pick.

Everyone thinks they will get a first and a prospect whenever trade speculation starts. Might get a package of mid round picks and a prospect or two.

Yandle is a better than him and wouldn't yield that. You put Yandle on the Pens and he'd shore up their defense and match Letang in points.

Our D will be fine regardless. We have spent a ton of picks on D and they will all be coming up soon. Harrington and Dumoulin will be on the team next year as well as Despres getting top 4 minutes.

your D has sucked balls since Scuderi was allowed to leave (they keep him and they have another cup)....and that to letting Gill go and you have no bite. Orpik's grown cement blocks for skates.

Goddammit homer. Now the price for Dmen just skyrocketed. Chances of resigning scuderi just went out the window.

it's not Quebec they want, the NHL wants another Toronto team. the Leafs are not having any of that.

But man if we could walk away from this with Hedman and Drouin that would be amazing.
Tampa is not dealing Hedman. and no way in hell would they deal him for Letang. let alone include the #3.

I guess we can assume Danny Briere is getting bought out then.

Could be both, although buying out Bryzgalov will cost about 24 million which is a hell of a lot of cash.
