Giroux, Schenn and Laughton, we may have the long term C depth to sacrifice Couturier
for a potential franchise defenseman, especially since Timonen will likely not be here after this year unfortunately. and then with Timonen's contract off the book, maybe you make a push for Corey Perry in the offseason.
Perry - Giroux - Voracek
Hartnell - Schenn - Briere
Simmonds - Laughton - Read
Fedetenko - Talbot - Rinaldo/Wellwood
Coburn - Jones
Meszaros - Schenn
Grossmann - Gustafsson
Brayden Schenn has yet to have a breakout season to force the organization to move him to center. Not impressed with what Laughton does so far.
Both are less valuable to the Flyers right now than Couts so I'd try to put together a package Schenn/Laughton + 1st + ? to acquire a potential #1D. Drafts can be treacherous at times - there is hardly a sure bet franchise defenseman available and even if so, he'd take multiple years to develop until he is ready.
