Well, it would be fun to revisit this thread once Couturier, Subban and Price reach their Prime.
Trading a franchise player, who you have no immediate replacement for is insane. Especially if your going to rely on getting lucky on waivers and trades to fill the hole

To answer to OP, I would have definitely considered it before we draft Galchenyuk. Now though, a potential #1 centre is not as needed as it was. So losing Subban and gaining Couturier actually creates a bigger hole than it fills. However a future centre lineup of Galchenyuk, Couturier, Eller/Plekanec/Desharnais would be incredible.
