So sick that although you think it's plausible and fair, you probably wouldn't do it because the player you would be giving up has so much talent and potential.
That's when you can tell it's a reasonable offer. When it hurts so bad you wouldn't do it personally...but if it happened in real life, as a fan, you could start to justify it because you just got a hugely dynamic and explosive, first pairing defenseman who is only 25 and signed to a great contract for 4 more years.
If this is true, then i guess the Couturier deal might not be bad. Philly is looking for a D man i believe.
