I love schenn and his physical play helps me cope with the loss of Richards. If this was the only way to bring in Nash, I would much rather part ways with schenn than couturier.
The flyers got unbelievably lucky that Couturier slid to the 8th pick.
We'll see I guess. I have close to no doubt Couturier will be a solid top 6 NHL'er but he's definitely not a guarantee to be a great player. He may be one of those 55-65 point elite 2 way guy. Nothing wrong with that, great player for sure. But no guarantee. Then again he could be a 90 point guy.
That being said if the Jackets could get a deal centered around him (JVR is overrated and looks to be on his way to being injury prone/problematic) for Nash they should definitely look into it.
Philly needs a d-man though, unless they trade for Nash and sign Suter I don't see how it works.
If that happens though....eesh
