by Pete Jensen @NHLJensen / Senior Fantasy Editor

When Kris Letang of the Pittsburgh Penguins is healthy, few defensemen are more valuable from a fantasy standpoint.

Letang, previously ranked 58th overall (ninth among defensemen) and safely projected for 52 points by, now joins the top five at his position (34th overall) with higher point expectations (56).

Murray not satisfied despite success with Penguins

Murray, who at 23 years old is a back-to-back Stanley Cup champion, goes into training camp this week as the No. 1 goalie ahead of newcomer Antti Niemi and without a hint of controversy because former Penguins No. 1 Marc-Andre Fleury is now with the Vegas Golden Knights.

Just don't tell Murray all of that. He's not buying it.
