No way in hell would I add to ROR for Couturier...

I swear, people seem to drink Flyer's fans Koolaid when it comes to their players a bit to easily. The NHL loves to talk about Pit and Philly the most, so I guess that makes it easier. In Canada, TML's prospects are extremely overrated because of this. Pit & Philly are getting the same treatment in the USA.

Add to ROR for Couturier.... lmao uhg...
Then you simply wouldn't get Couturier. I'm not saying it would be a good trade, but what it would take. Couturier will be better than ROR one day soon, whether that is next year or in 2 years. Couturier had a better rookie season while averaging 2.5 minutes less a game (while having about the same SH TOI).

One trade that I would really entertain from the Flyers is something around Laughton and ROR. The Flyers would have to add (significantly IMO good defensive prospect or 1st round pick), but I see Laughton to be in the exact same form as ROR just a few years younger.
