Kris Letang: Nearing $58 Million Extension With Pens
Update: Letang is close to signing an eight-year, $58 million contract extension with the Penguins, Renaud Lavoie of reports.

Recommendation: There were some murmurs that Letang could be moved out of Pittsburgh if the two sides couldn't reach an agreement on an extension, but it seems those worries will soon be put to rest. The 26-year-old defenseman put up 38 points (5G, 33A) and a plus-16 rating during the regular season, and he led the team in assists (13) during the postseason, earning a pretty penny in the process. His contract will include a no-trade clause, limited to 15 teams.
