I really don't think Homer wants to move Schenn or Couturier at all.
You're not alone.

As I posed in the Offseason thread, I have some concerns about this move--both the player to be acquired and the potential cost.

On the other hand, I'd have no issue offering Voracek, Read, Cousins and a pick for Yandle.

Phoenix gets to build on their Czech core, and Voracek definitely fits their two-way style. Read will add 25 goals on the cheap to a team that wasn't exactly overflowing with offense. Cousins gives them a future 3C prospect. The pick is negotiable.

They still have Vermette and Hanzel as top-6 centers.

Doan-Vermette-Whitney
Voracek-Hanzel-Vrbata

Am I reaching here?

On the other hand...

Coburn-Yandle
Timonen-Grossmann
Mezsaros-MAB
Lilja

Let Carle walk.
