Couturier and Schenn might be interchangable for Philadelphia, but I doubt it. Hartnell and Simmonds are absolutely not.

Even selling lower on Schenn(as a prospect vs. an nhl player), the way they did, that trade by the Kings for Richard was a pretty hefty package.
I disagree with the last line, they absolutely hosed them. Schenn will probably never be a Mike Richards and Simmonds is a pretty decent second liner, but he's replaceable. Whenever you get the best player in the deal, you're probably winning at some level, and anytime you trade two lesser forwards for a high-end one, yeah, I'd say you're winning big time.
