Depending on how desperate they are, I suggested this as a trade on the main boards.

To Calgary:

Couts, Gus

To Philly:

Jbo, Backlund, 1st round pick

Many of the posters on our board are going to say that is way to steep of a price to pay, but Couturier will likely end up being a premier 2-way center in the NHL. He has the defensive ability of a Mike Richards, but he has superior size and I feel he has a better offensive skill set.

Based on where our roster is at, we will probably be selecting in the middle of the pack again. Hindsight, Couturier should of been selected probably within the top 3 of his draft. There is no way we would get someone that is on the level of Couts with our 1st round pick. While its alot to give up, I would make that deal.
I don't think the Flyers will give up Couts in a trade for JBO
The rumor was they wouldn't even include Couts in a trade for Weber...

However I wonder if the Flyers would be willing to package B. Schenn & Read & Grossman for JBO & Backlund & Anton

I know L. Schenn just joined the Flyers but come on - if Holmgren likes the deal he will go for it
