I'd be happy. Apparently Couturier is very good defensively, he could replace Plek as our 2nd Centre relatively soon.
Not an overreaction, just an analysis were that scenario to take place. While Courturier has a high ceiling, he is not among Montreal's needs nor is he Subban. Inept management has cost us how many good players and prospects? Look how poorly Koivu was treated despite the supposed "class" of this organization. And what is left to show for it? A bought out albatross and our former prospect being among the best young defensemen in the league.

This is all a moot point because there is no guarantee Couturier is even the asset acquired. Montreal has anything but an impressive resume when it comes to trades. Apparently, Bryan Scheen is falling out of favor. He and Luke could be who is shipped out for all we know.

Bergervin says the habs depth at D in the prospect pool allowed him to make this deal for a big talented young Center, and is all smiles. Couturier is praised and regarded as the next great one and saviour in Montreal by the media.
Along with the slew of Subban is overrated, classless et cetera
