Letang News ?

Pirates are in a race... sorta Steelers are in camp. That's almost like a Pittsburgh holiday. And the lead news story here in the Burgh, is that Letang cut his hair. Really ?

Re: Letang News ?

Like all media the Pittsburgh media dropped the ball too.

Now is it possible that all that hair is why he would make bonehead plays? Maybe it is the top story because now Letang is thinking more clearly and seeing the ice better and will be on his way to 5 consecutive Norris Trophies!

Naaaah!

Re: Letang News ?

But did you see his old haircut? This move was desperately needed. Now that he got the big contract, he can afford a proper barber.

Re: Letang News ?

He was our best playoff defenseman. Admittedly, that doesn't say much, but he was. He was also the only one who did anything to protect Crosby. I will take the occasional slip up for the talent upside. They won a Cup with Letang playing within a structured system. Under the former regime, he was asked to do ENTIRELY too much.

We’re not going to apologize for caring. We’re not.

Re: Letang News ?

was he ASKED to do too much or was he ALLOWED to do too much?

Re: Letang News ?

I think he can be really effective, maybe the best overall D-man in the league, if he were more disciplined. He's a great skater. It's when he tries to get all crazy and make a sports center type play that he gets in trouble. Rein him in a bit (don't completely snuff him) and he'd be a monster.

You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!

Very true.

I think it's unfair to say Disco and the Pens expected too much of a guy slated to make top 5 money in the league (for a d-man). Letang is prone to mental lapses that only he can correct. I'd like to believe he'll be able to work to his full potential within the new system, but only time will tell.
