Couturier has a 70-80 point ceiling with selke caliber defense. Schenn has a 40+ goal scorer ceiling, captain material, 80 point player. Plus both play center and can move to wing.

See the thing is though, defense IS a need. Once Timonen is done, we will really see the effects of not trading or getting a young defender when we needed it.

I remember last season people were trying to trade Timonen saying they were comfortable with Carle, Coburn and Meszaros in our top 4 and leading the team on defense... Yea. Thats not going to work now or in the future.

I just think we have a need on defense compared to more forwards.
