Sum of all fears:
Look again at this:
There is absolutely no silver lining in this. This is devastating, not only in a hockey sense, but for Kris Letang personally. Letang was again starting to assert himself as the Pens top d-man. He stabilized Paul Martin, and basically was approaching Gonch levels on the powerball. And of course the timing is the worst. Pens cannot make a trade to get help because the deadline is over. if the Pens playoff run falls short you bet your ass you can circle this moment as the most damming of everything to happen this season.
