It's 4 roster spot against 2... so your stats aren't valid. But I do agree that the trades were good. The way Couturier plays as a 19 years old, he's on pace for near 20 goals while playing on the 4th line and plays very well defensively, I see no reason why he wouldn't become better than Carter in a few years. And if Schenn doesn't become injury prone, I see him becoming at least as good as Richards, but it's not as clear as Couturier yet though.
The only problem is : They're all centers. Couturier could become a 1st line center, but that spot is obviously G's spot. That's why I'd rather see a winger like JVR becoming a all star player. But whatever, having 2 superstars centers on 2 lines would also be awesome (or even 3).
