THIS ONE IS NOT close. Pitts­burgh won the Stan­ley Cup last sea­son with­out Le­tang. He has been good on the power play, but when he’s re­placed on the point with Justin Schultz, I don’t see any drop in Pitts­burgh’s per­for­mance. As a de­fen­sive player, he has been very av­er­age. Byfuglien is the phys­i­cal and emo­tional leader of the Win­nipeg team. He plays in all sit­u­a­tions and ap­pears to make his team­mates bet­ter. His loss would cre­ate a huge void for the Jets. EDGE: BYFUGLIEN
