Team Explanation
Letang should be Sid's winger. Solves the 9 defensemen issue and limits risk on the back end. You would get a great risk reward.

no idea why they have so many dmen up right now with the amount of injuries their offense is taking.

Hes on OD, so its not unexpected that he will get beat more times than not. Same with others like Burns. But moving from his position to a forward, he will look out of place

It would be a sight to see. Especially now since they're missing half their starters

He sure played winger on that goal last night against Dallas. He is one of their shoot out picks and not because he has a 130 slap shot. But he can dangle like a forward. But everyone is entitled to their opinion. They even played Riiloka on wing the other night when McCann was injured. So maybe there is hope we'll sing Letang on a wing soon.
