Me personally, I'd rather have Thornton and Letang and I realize I'm probably in the minority on that, but I love having a defenseman that I know will produce 50 points (not this year, but you know what I'm saying). That's almost like having another winger. Plus, I know with pretty fair certainty what I'm going to get from Joe Thornton. Ovechkin has been getting progressively worse and Richards is on a new team. Will that tandem score more goals than Letang and Thornton, probably. More overall points though, open for debate in my opinion.
