Desharnais and Plekanec have chemistry and are arguably better right now than Couturier, and Galchenyuk is well on his way. Heck even Eller could out do Couturier career wise, quite easily. He simply doesn't fit well. I like the kid (even if he's older than me.......), but he simply doesn't fit.
OT: PK will never go, at least until he reaches his potential or busts. He could be such a great defenseman, he's a fan favourite, and he's just plain exciting to watch!
Sorry, but if you can get Couturier, you send Lars Eller packing everywhere for whatever you can get. Or play Eller at wing.
I wouldn't necessarily make that deal, but having Lars Eller in the lineup is NOT a reason to turn down a trade involving Couturier getting to Montreal.
