I'd consider it depending on the return, but it would have to be significant.

He truthfully stated that Rey Shero's history suggest his bigger splash deals have always been moving young d men (well thought of) on the rise, right before their next big deal is due (whitney, gogo). They were moved for multiple assets. The only such d man on the roster is 58. He made some sense. They may not be able to double his salary next year and a canadian team wouldn't mind overpaying for him. He theorized that you could get a stay at home d, of lesser value of course and a rugged wing/grinder and a prospect for 58. History does not lie, what he stated about the past was true, but if shero does it he has huge balls. I like 58, he is a physical marvel, but he's either not getting guidance here, or he's not that smart. His play is not what i'd call cerebral. Still tough to trade that much raw ability.

If you can get Crosby's wing (Yakupov/Eberle/Ryan/etc.) and a nice defensive d-man, it would be difficult to say no. He is a Norris guy, but our strength is on our defensive depth. Comparatively, Letang brings in a better return relative to his value than any of our defensive prospects right now.
