We'd still have Giroux, Briere, Laughton, at center with Read being able to play it too. That's without even bringing free agency into the mix. Our center depth is our only position of strength. Schenn has also been playing wing this whole season.
Laughton is not a 3rd line center yet... and still has time to develop. Briere is an aging center who shouldn't be playing center any more. There really isn't any UFA centers that are intriguing either. Read can fill in as a center, but he is a winger in the NHL. Getzlaf? He probably will be resigned. Andy Mcdonald? no thanks.
I really like Couts potential though. That's why I said there are a few more young defenders I would trade him for too, not only Piety.
I would much rather keep Couts and Schenn than trade them for OEL. Like wise Phoenix fans would like to keep OEL.
