Kris Letang reportedly has told those close to him that he thinks he'll be traded.

Penguins GM Jim Rutherford has publicly stated that he won't be actively trying to trade core players, but Letang is reportedly concerned in spite of that. It probably doesn't help that Rutherford has sent out feelers to opposing general managers in an attempt to gauge Letang's market value. “Honestly, it doesn’t sound like they know what the market is for Letang,” one league source told The Athletic. “Jim was fishing. That’s not exactly trying to trade the guy. But the word’s out that Jim wants to know what he could get from one of the teams Letang could go to.” Letang is 33-years-old now and his age is even more of a concern given his long history of injuries. That said, when he's healthy, Letang is still one of the best offensive defensemen in the league and it's unlikely that trading Letang would make the Penguins better in the short-term, which would be their primary focus given how heavily the team is in win-now mode.
