especially given that as soon as he got yanked off the top power play unit it started rolling again. How can you pay that much to a guy you can't trust to always be a pp quarterback?


that was a long time coming...but the real reason why it made no sense to pay him given the cap is how weak our foward depth is and how strong our defensive depth is. if they had any idea how good Maata actually is they'd never had signed 58.

Technically they could steal trade him. His contract doesn't kick in until next year yes?

This game reminded me of the first game after Crosby's ankle sprain. Malkin logged big minutes and was an animal in all three zones. This was a regular occurrence under Therrien rather than the exception these days.

But didn't Letang get a 'handshake' from Shero! He can't be traded.

THey can trade him when his new contract kicks in, too. He's got a limited movement deal, not a no-trade clause.

Ah, nostaglia for Therrien. I remember those 3-2 and 4-2 and 4-3 losses to the Canadiens in the 2007-2009 seasons before the change.

So, what's the market for a guy you're trying to move on the last year of a 3+ million dollar deal with a 7+ million dollar deal about to kick in? And what does it tell your potential trade partners about how you feel about that deal you inked said player to over the summer?

The ONLY chance Shero has of moving Letang is if someone comes begging for him.

I'm not a Letang hater, but given the defense depth in the organization, I was fine with the idea of moving him to acquire depth. But at this point, that isn't going to happen. He's a Penguin for AT LEAST 2 more years.
