Letestu Rumored to Have Signed with Pittsburgh

There are unconfirmed internet rumors that Western Michigan freshman forward Mark Letestu has signed a professional contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins. It was reported earlier this week that Letestu was fielding offers from professional teams, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him sign a contract.

UPDATE: Letestu has officially left Western Michigan.

I agree with the second guy. Its a joke that he is leaving early. the only one that is a moron is him for leaving after his freshman year. He has not done anything special against big time schools and there are way better freshman that have made a bigger impact to there team like minnesota st. cloud denver and there rookies have more talent then him im sorry the truth hurts. He needs to stay

Oxymoronish wouldn't you say? "Hey Letestu, you stink" "Your school stinks" and "there are a hundred other guys in the WCHA that deserve the 180,000.00 signing bonus that your getting" "Go back to school, turn your back on the dough, and expose yourself for what I, (a WCHA slappy), know.. that your a no talent bum".....If this guy stinks like you say he does, why the hell should he turn down the money just to expose himself... Your an idiot...

He's a moron for leaving after his freshman year? He put up 46 points in 37 games and he's already 22 years old. His freshman year equals someone else's normal senior year of college. What benefit is it for him to stick around at Western until he's 25 and play for a crappy team? His stock is high enough after a good year where someone wants to throw a nice contract his way, so why risk sticking around and having his stock drop when he can take the money now? Moron.

Go ask any of the WCHA players that you idolize so much that you are blinded by reality!!!!

They will tell you the Mark Letestu can play. He is hands down the best playmaker I have seen in the college game!!! That includes everyone in WCHA.

Notice I am not saying that WCHA, or any other conference sucks, but I am saying that Mark was the best Freshman in college hockey, period!

Denying Letestu is extremely talented is only a sign of ignorance. And to say he did nothing against "big time" schools, is ridiculous. How about 13G-13A=26P in 16 games against the top 25 in nation. That seems pretty good to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
