Honestly did not see that coming. That is a pretty hefty contract that he just turned down

He wants out BAD. No way he gets more than that anywhere else, and if he does it'll only be a slight increase.

I can't even fathom how she expects to get more than that. I didn't think Shero would offer anywhere NEAR that. Didn't think any team would offer more than 6 mil per season. Still dont think any will. Hope they get something good in a trade.

After turning that down, I don't even want her on the team.

The Penguins could have been eliminated in the second round without him.

Would you like to make a wager on that? He's going to get 8 years at a minimum of 64 million with a max of 72 million. Just watch. A low cap team will offer it up.

Detroit anyone?

honestly, how can the pens have even been able to afford that with the amount they have tied up in the other clowns (malkin, cyndy and fleury)

personally i don't think he is even worth that much and to think that he is gonna get more, wow

Really? The Penguins didn't need his help to not make it out of the second round. They could have done it without him.

What I'm gathering from your post "The Penguins could have been eliminated in the second round without him" ; is "Ottawa would have defeated Pittsburgh in Round 2 if Pittsburgh didn't have Letang."

Is that what you're trying to say? If so, please elaborate.

Read between the lines here, I'm not so sure Letang is actually leaving the Penguins organization solely over money as that offer is pretty hefty!

I would say it might very well be his relationship or lack thereof with Bylsma that is the true catalyst for this decision.

And Letang will get a deal equal to or better from another organization.

Deal still hasn't been signed. I hope it doesn't happen. I'd love to see him resign, but this is too damn much money.
