Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,
He's a great kid. Occasionally a great defenseman, too.
And that's precisely why it's time to trade him.
Or at least think a whole heck of a lot about it.
To repeat, this isn't negative. It's not about Letang's maddening tendencies, his misfires or giveaways. It's certainly not about any one game — and Letang was quite good, for the record, in the 5-1 flogging of the Canadiens, including a sweet assist on a Sidney Crosby goal — nor is it about his injury-plagued season, nor even his star-crossed career.
Rather, it's quite the opposite. It's that Letang remains so valuable that he can get you a mint. And if that mint happens to involve pieces that work better with the Penguins' broader puzzle, all the more reason a trade merits robust consideration.
