Ray Shero starts every conversation about a player's future the same way: He asks whether that player wants to stay with the Penguins.

Letang could play hockey with Sidney
Crosby and Evgeni Malkin for a long time if he is agreeable to an annual
salary around $6 million and a limited-movement clause.
