The Penguins have won three Stanley Cups in the Kris Letang era (and two since he signed a massive extension), but that doesn't mean he's not overpaid. The 31-year-old was awarded an eight-year, $58 million extension during the 2013 offseason, and boy did former GM Ray Shero overpay him. Now, Letang is good for around 50 points a season when healthy, which is a good thing. However, he's one of the league's worst defensive blueliners, having turned the puck over 89 times this season while posting a minus-nine rating. He's being paid on the level of a Norris Trophy-caliber guy like Erik Karlsson, Brent Burns and Drew Doughty, and there's simply no way Letang is on the same level of these guys. He's good, not great, on offence. And he's not even close to being a top-flight defensive player.

The Penguins obviously don't regret giving him the money, because Letang did give help them win the Stanley Cup in 2016 and '17. But is he a guy who should take up a chunk of their cap space when he's a one-dimensional defenceman? Not a chance. The fact he only makes a little bit less than Sidney Crosby is pure silly.

How do you like that! He scores only goal for Pens, but he lets Caps score winning goal. Please get rid of him!

If you followed him his whole career you would know that the "stroke" has nothing to do with his terrible playing. He was always a bad player for most of the time.

skills have really declined in past few years. Must be from the stroke.

Dude- They have places to go for your drug addition. You have to be wacked out and or know nothing about hockey to say those words. Make more sense if you said the chicks like him so marketing department want to keep him around.

I predicted that the Pens couldn't win another cup with Letang playing. It just may come true. He's the main reason for all the Pens losses.

Should not be in NHL let alone my 7.25 million in NHL. This lack of defensive situation Pens have is squarely on Jim Rutherford's shoulders. Got rid of there best playoff Def in Cole to bring in O-man they did not need. They were already highest scoring team in the league. What they could not do was stop other teams from scoring. Letang is horrible and his +/- all year shows. Plays on powerplay on most high octane offense in the game. His career was over years ago after stroke. Feel bad but they should have dealt him then when he still had value.

Terrible. Worst defenseman in the playoffs. We should have shopped his ass and kept Daley, Cole, or Hainsey.
