I can't understand how you mistook that as him saying "We should trade for Dougie Hamilton".
I've had a few beers.
Anyway, I want Dougie Hamilton AND I want Couturier. It's a depressing realization.
EDIT: The more and more I look at the list, the more and more I really think Seth Jones is the only one. The rest just aren't the complete package right now of size, awareness, and skill. Pulock is a maybe. Nurse is interesting, but I don't see him being ready yet.
One other thing to recognize is that Hamilton was already halfway through his season. Half a year of development after the draft is a big help.
