It's pretty amusing, right? The Flyers finally find the player -- a special talent and truly rare gem of a player -- who can match up against Malkin, and people think, after just one season and at age 19, he's acceptable trade fodder. I can tell everyone without equivocation: Sean Couturier will not be traded, for anyone. Nor should he be. And you better believe everyone in the Flyers organization, especially the big boss, feels the exact same way. Couturier and Giroux are the franchise cornerstones.

I'm telling you, two to three years from now Couturier will be one of the NHL's premier two-way centers and an annual Selke finalist, all while putting up around 70 points per season. You simply do not find many players of his caliber -- and when you do, you ****ing hold onto them with a death grip.
