Look I love Seth Jones, think he's a fantastic player but I don't think losing Couturier for him is anywhere close to helping this team. Jones isn't going to step in and make this team better now, or in 5 years. In fact he reminds me of a bigger version of Erik Johnson. All the tools.. no tool box and to be a Franchise defender in this league you need the tools and the tool box... something Couturier has proven he has.
