Based on the fact that we got the 8th overall in a package for Staal, I would say yes
I say no, the bottom 5 teams are all rebuilding for the future and a quick fix guy isn't going to reshape their franchise. Letang seems like the type of player a team in the hunt would want to push them over the edge. MTL, Vancouver SJ, Even Winnipeg might want a player like him to add to the talent they have. The bottom 5 teams got holes and need a future not a player for right now. Just my 2 cents. I hope I am wrong I would love to land any of the top 5 in the draft.
MTL bought out Karable last year on his contract... 4.5. Are they making room for Letang???
LOL I am just rumor mongering. I am guessing they bought him out cause he just plain stinks!!
I see Letang as a guy you build your team around, not someone that puts you over the edge. He's only 26. Why can't he be now and the future? If I were Tampa, I'd rather have Letang.
