    Trade Advise PLease,

    Yes, Letang is one of the better Defensemen in the league. Yes, he missed 31 games last season. Yes, he is already on IR this year. Just saying. When healthy, Letang in one of the better offensive defensemen. That I will most definitely agree with. Im just saying since he is already hurt this year, you may want to trade him based on his availability in this shortened season. There is no time to wait around this year. I apologize if I offended you.

    • Looking back I think I was offended by the term 'liability'. Considering anybody a liability because they get hurt or are "injury prone" is short-sighted. If you drafted this way you would have missed out on Crosby, Vanek, Letang, Toews, Byfuglien, D.Sedin, Backstrom(s) etc. who all missed significant time just last year. It's so frustrating dealing with that mentality when trading. Letang has enormous upside, much like Vanek, but plays on a better team. He is also just a year removed from a full 82 game season. Finally, I saw no mention that this wasn't a keeper league, so giving up on a young Letang for a possibly last season Dan Boyle and a struggling Suter, made this trade a one year winner but a long term fiasco.
