Kris Letang Contract Demands by @ExcitedBobErrey

Word leaked before the draft Sunday that Kris Letang had agreed to an 8 year, $58 million dollar extension to remain in Pittsburgh.  However, it wasn't until yesterday afternoon that the Penguins finally announced the deal, while the delay was attributed to minor issues that needed to be resolved.  Our inside source in the Penguins organization, a high ranking member of the front office who has knowledge of the negotiations and possibly really exists, told us that the hold up was due to some conditions Letang wanted the Penguins to take care of before he'd agree to the new deal.  We give you a small peek inside the Kris Letang negotiation with a list of some of Kris Letang's contract demands.
