Impact of Kris Letang

Something I found interesting, courtesy as always of Jon Bombulie:

Another number you might find interesting. WBS power play with Kris Letang in the lineup -- 11-66 (16.7 percent). Without Letang in the lineup -- 4-50 (8.0 percent). Twice as good.

Terrific statistic from a defenseman, especially a professional rookie.

Tonight the Penguins take on Atlanta Thrashers, who've been good since their coaching change, but no player has been better offensively since Todd White got to center the top line with superstars Ilya Kovalchuk and Marian Hossa. The Sarge and Mark Eaton are quietly going to have their hands full stopping the engine that's made the T-bombs drive.....And if it's not so quiet the Pens are in for a long night.
