going to be better than Giroux -- who Flyer fans consider a top 5 center, going to be a HOFer, that he's not going to be traded for anyone
, etc.) are hard things to live up to.
Never heard anybody say that stuff.
But yes Couturier is the Flyers best defensive forward and I don't even know how that could be questioned if you watched more then a few Flyers games from the beginning of the regular season to the post season.
I think the trade maybe fairly close value wise but the incentive to make this trade just isn't there for either side IMO. So no from both I would guess.
