I don't think it's
Suter >> Boyle, though they play different styles. Optimistically, Boyle probably only has 2-3 more years of elite play too, so the defense stays stronger longer.
Couture >>>> Setoguchi + Clutterbuck by a significant margin, though it fills a team need of forward depth without losing a top-6 roster spot.
Separately the deals would never work, and the differences should in theory negate each other. However, I think the difference between Boyle and Suter, while quite large, is less than Couture and Setoguchi+Clutterbuck.
But I agree that Minny would never do the deal. I also doubt Doug Wilson would pull the trigger on it either if the trade was on the table.
