Team Explanation
DISCLAIMER-I DON'T THINK LETANG WILL BE TRADED OR SHOULD BE!

but why not experiment...?

So Letang has a 18 team trade list or a 13 team no-trade list, however you want to look at it. he is from Quebec so I doubt he'd block MTL. MTL would have to move petry or something so accommodate Letang probably. but for the sake of this post, let's go with it...so mccann's rumoured to be on the block IMHO just because of his 20 something game goals drought...
Letang=Danault, Primeau, 3rd, 5th
McCann>Lehkonen
Larmi, Aberg, 7th<Fleury
so I think that deal is close to fair.

Murray is as good as gone. GMJR reportedly is asking a 1st +, which I think he will get close to...I think CGY is a legit trade partner.
Murray=1st, 5th
Zavgorodny, Bennett=3rd, angello, almeida

to move JJ I think Legare (3rd) Bjorkvist (2nd) is enough....

someone has to replace Letang so why not go for the big fish pietrangelo...

random thoughts:
-Danault would be a great 2 way #3C and could fill in in case of injury...
-some mix of Lehkonen, Danault, Hornqvist, and Simon would be a corsi juggernaut!
-Bennet can slot in the bottom-6 fine I think for whoever Will (not if) get hurt...
-With Jarry, Desmith, and Primeau that should be a good 1/2/3 goalie group
-the special teams looks good on paper (or in this case, screen)
-hopefully Rierden will PUT A RH SHOT ON THE LEFT HALF WALL ON THE POWER PLAY!!! (rust, Kapanen)
-Bennet and pietrangelo slot in nicely to the PP
-there are a TON of PK options for sure...the top-4 D can do it for sure + a mix of ZAR, Tanev, Bleuger, Kapanen, Danault, Bennet, Rust, Lehkonen, and even Sid and Jake if everyone else is hurt....oh please no!
-Finally Simon doesn't have to play.....but he will anyway somehow if healthy...just because....he always does.....(when rust or Kapanen finds himself on the 3rd line....)

Why on earth would we want Letang? We’re not trading Petry so that we can downgrade him to trade for Letang.

i agree with your comment that the only way we move Letang is if we sign Petro (which prolly wont happen)

Danault is Possibly the most underrated player in the nhl. He’s not going anywhere and we don’t want let’s go thanks. His best years are behind him now
