We have so much resources back defensively and our offensive counterpart is definatively Edmonton. Sooner or later the just have to screen among their talent, to not only waste their value and talent but also give room for qualification spots.
Jordan Eberle is one of the golden nuggets I'ld like, but it feels like grasping towards clouds.
Pretty sure both Philly and Chicago would laugh at those offers. Even if you drop the Philly third and add a PHX 2nd, they'd still say no rather easily. I can tell because I'd be delighted to trade Gormley and a 2nd for Couturier. If it doesn't realllllllly make you hesitate the other team laughs as they say no. Couterier is a safe, proven young commodity. Even younger than the less proven Gormley. The "fit" is just fine because Philly needs a D like we all hope Gormley will become. The uncertainty, however, skews the value heavily in our favor.

The value is probably fair on the Hawks deal but Toews is their captain and they've already got two number one D in Chicago. With Seabrook and Keith already getting 30mins a night, why trade your face of the franchise, young number one center for another top D? This deal has fine value for Chicago but I think it's a poor fit for the Hawks.
