sure, couturier and Yakupov are close in a vaccum.
But the flyers need defense. Giving up our best 2 defensive players for more offense is beyond idiotic.
Teubert has a ways to go before he can jump into a top 4 spot and he would be lucky to be as good as Coburn.
So we take a huge downgrade on defense and get an unproven possible upgrade in offense.
Yeah, no. Pass.
You're giving Teubert too much credit. He'd be lucky to make it as a 3rd pairing d-man in the NHL. He's got flaws in his game and he's got a ways to go before he makes it as a mainstay on any team in the NHL IMO.
Edmonton was playing the likes of Cam Barker, Theo Peckham and Cory Potter on the third pairing last year. That should speak volumes on howwell Teubert has turned out. He's big a tough guy who's more than willing to do all of the dirty work, but pretty much every other aspect of his game is pretty weak.
