If the rumours that he turned down 7 years and $56M are true, the Penguins might have to trade the player who will become an unrestricted free agent after next season.  While the idea of a blue line with both Erik Karlsson and Letang patrolling it would be remarkable, the Senators would not be able to afford that deal with their budget in place.

Could the Senators take a chance on Letang for one year and then let him walk for nothing?  Not likely but in what could be Daniel Alfredsson‘s last season it would be nice to see.

Not Likely to become a Senator.
