    god i hope not this guy is very injury prone and i think after his stroke he’ll never be the same type of player he was….i’ll keep subban over this guy as,he’s twice the defenceman that letang is……

      Twice the defenseman is a little extreme unless you assume his injury history and stroke WILL HAVE a negative impact next year and after. Because you cannot assume that Letang still has great value.

      That being said the return the Pens would want (and should ask for) Montreal won’t go anywhere near it. There would have to be some serious security that Letang would play full seasons and no one is going to include that many conditional 1sts for it.

      I don’t think it can be done unless the Pens will accept a decent prospect, a 1st and a cap dump for Letang (again assuming Montreal is willing to take the risk for that price) which the Pens shouldn’t accept for Letang IMO.

    well at this point in time subban is twice the defenceman that letang is…

      Only value wise and only if you assume Letangs health history WILL affect his game (which you can’t).

      He is better without a doubt but not by as big a margin as you think.
