Wouldn't do Couturier for Kessel straight up? Makes sense that Flyers would rather opt for a solid defensive forward with the potential to be more, but trade value wise, Kessel should easily get that sort of a return. IMHO

Kessel is what he is and gets his points no matter who he plays with, sure there would probably be a marginal increase in scoring, but I get the feeling it won't be dramatic like James Neal with Malkin.

I also don't see Kessel as a player Philly would be looking to add, like numerous people have said, Philly needs a #1 D not to add a defensively weak player to a defensively weak team.

It might be fun to watch them play Pittsburgh, but they wouldn't fare as well against the good defensive teams who also have some offense.
What makes you say that? Kessel dramatically increased his point per game average (over a PPG) ever since Lupul replaced the Crabbs/Frattins on his line.
