( Letang flirting with disaster, get it? ruff ruff ruff rfff)
There comes a point in time where an NHL players goes from " Wow, he is going to be really good," to, "Wow, that guy is really good."
Every player is different. With Sidney Crosby it was right away. He scored 100 points his first NHL season. MVP nods and nominations came flowing in after that.
Same with Evgeni Malkin. He won the Calder, an MVP, etc. Despite Malkin's recent struggles, his pedigree is established. He is a top ten NHL player on his worst day.
Now, on to Kris Letang. He is the definition of the "Wow, this guy is going to be really good," guy. He isn't the "Wow, this guy is at the top of his game," guy yet. And the question we have: when is that going to take place?
Hard truth: Not until the Penguin coaching staff, and Letang himself change some things.
