Kris Letang cares so much about the Penguins, the organization he has won three Stanley Cups with since they drafted him back in 2005. And that’s what Mike Sullivan loves so much about him.
“I sacrifice everything for this team,” Letang said.
“Just his care factor for this organization and helping this team win is off the charts,” Sullivan said.
That’s part of the reason why Letang has been taking the Penguins’ season ending so hard.
When asked to assess his play this postseason on the Penguins’ locker cleanout day last week, the 31-year-old defenseman was critical of his performance – specifically in Game 5 of the Second Round against Washington.
Sidney Crosby on Letang: “There’s no doubt in my mind, no matter what the situation is, that you can rely on him. Everyone has good and bad games, but as a teammate you couldn’t have a more dependable guy that competes the way he does.”
