Penguins defenseman Kristopher Letang is most likely going to stay in Pittsburgh, but, according to reports, if he were to be traded, he would prefer the Leafs as his new destination.
"GM Ray Shero already locked in Evgeni Malkin to a massive contract extension that will kick in after next season and that adds to the mega deals for Sidney Crosby and James Neal. Between just the three of them they will account for $23 million of the team's space, not leaving much room for Letang and his expected $7 million contract that's sure to come." - Eye On Hockey
Letang had 38 points in 35 games last season and was a plus 16 rating.
Phaneuf, Franson, Gardiner, Gunnarsson. That's an impressive group of defensemen. Adding Letang to the mix would be expensive, but it would add even more depth to the Leafs blueline.
