I think Letang is as talented as any top dman in the NHL and yes, maybe another coach will put him on the right track but the Penguins aren't in a position to wait and find out.
You're insane. Letang is worth every penny of his $7 million and his relative cap hit will shrink as the cap increases each year.
The guy is an absolute game breaker and can take over a game at any moment. You don't get that with the type of player you're going to sign for $4-5 million.
Matt Niskanan, Andy Macdonald...those are the guys you're getting for $4.5-5.5 million. You don't have a concept of what that money is ACTUALLY getting you on the open market. It's not like NHL 2014 where you can sign one 90 overall player or get two 85 overall players for the same price. It doesn't work like that in real life.
