You're saying the Flyers should do this because they cannot wait for Couturier to develop and Gardiner fills an immediate need?

1) The Flyers don't need another second pairing dman, they need a legit top pairing guy which Gardiner isn't atm.

2) Couturier was one of, if not the best defensive forward on the team during the playoffs. Trading him would leave a large hole on our third line.

So in the end, on an immediate needs basis, the Flyers create a large hole and pick up something that they have an abundance of.

Yeah, no.
