<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Saskleaf</b></div><div>Cost and age considered, I'd take Pesce over Letang any day of the week. Letang might be slightly "better" now, but in a trade that's not all you look for. Letang is 34. Trochek, in his last full season (17-18) , scored 75 points. Petterson's top season was 25 points (yes, I realize he is a defenceman), Pesce is considered to be one of the best defencive defenceman in the game. Zac Aston Reese is worth less than a second. What more do you want.</div></div>
Letang is a lot better. If a gm is trading for Letang, they are looking to win now and not a few years down the road. If the pens are trading Letang, it’s to blow it up and rebuild. Cool story with Trochek, however he played just as much of a season as everyone else last year and still scored less than Letang (a defenseman), while playing 1 more game than tanger. Not to mention Trochek had 58% offensive zone starts (by far the most in his career) and still only managed 38 points. Had they played an 82 game season, he scores maybe 45 points at the rate he was at. I don’t care what he did 3 years ago. If we aren’t going to base Letangs value from his last full season, then why should we do it for Trochek?
Petterson is a solid two way defenseman. His stats are comparable to Pesce.
What more do I want? To not lose trades in a major way lol
