As fantastic as I think Couturier is, and will continue to be, I think given the teams desperate needs for a franchise D-man, Hamilton would have better filled a need for the organization.

The dilema for me is how Couturier slipped to 8th in the first place.....He should have been the 3rd drafted Center, not the 6th.

If he isnt there, rumour has it they would have taken Siemens, which would have been a big mistake leaving Hamilton on the board at 8 as well.

No matter how you look at it, IMO, while Hamilton fills a need on the blueline, the Flyers got a steal with Couturier at 8th.
