Default Letang rejects Pens 8 year / $54M offer

Defenseman Kris Letang has rejected one of the largest contract offers in the Penguins history.

Letang declined an eight-year contract that would have paid him around $54 million (total) late Thursday, sources told the Tribune-Review.

However, his agent, Kent Hughes, stressed Letang remains only interested in playing for the Penguins.

Kunitz kept

Kunitz agreed to a three-year contract that would keep him with the Penguins through the 2016-17 season.

His new deal is for three years at a total of $11.55 million. He will receive a $125,000 annual raise on his current deal, which runs through next season. His salary-cap hit on the new deal is $3.85 million.

Getting way too greedy now. I doubt Shero gives him 7 mill/year. That's just too much dumped into 3 players. I have a feeling he'll go the same way Staal did.

Will DePaoli‏@TIOPS_DePaoli14m
Can confirm Letang's agent Kent Hughes countered the Penguins 8 year, $54 million offer, asking for 8 years, $62.5 million/ full NTC


Shelly Anderson ‏@pgshelly 12s
Kent Hughes, agent for #Penguins D Kris Letang, confirms sides remain amenable to discussions about extension. First exchange unfruitful.


“Our goal remains to see if there’s a deal that can be worked out,” Hughes told ESPN.com Friday afternoon

Pens reportedly want Staal package for Letang

If the Pittsburgh Penguins trade Kris Letang, they want at least one NHL player under term for multiple years, a first-round draft pick and a top prospect, sources told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

That would be great.

It worked well the first time.

Find some team desperate enough to overpay a 'star' and get a good haul for an offensive defensman.

Knowing Shero, he can trade the prospect and/or picks for a gritty player (D-man) who can actually help this team win more than regular season games.

Seems that they've worked out a compromise of 8 years for 58 mill and an NTC.

It's still yet to be confirmed, some sources have said it's a done deal, some say they are close on agreeing to this. Either way, this seems to be the final offer on the table. I'm sure we'll know for sure within a couple of hours.
