Where does he fit, long term? Couturier is a C, Schenn pretty obviously cannot play wing, do you move G to wing and promote one of those two to his line just so you can fit Laughton in a top 9 role? We need a defensemen that can grow with this team. Gus is a solid prospect but I think his role will be limited to bottom pairing minutes, Ghost is a good prospect but how long does it take for him to come up? Does he go the JvR route and finish school before he turns pro? Even so is he really going to be ready for NHL playing time in a year or 2? We need a guy that can step in, in the next year or so that can eat big minutes and grow into a top pairing defensemen within the next year or so. Laughton is the best prospect we have at a redundant position. I don't think we can afford to not move him for a D prospect closer to the NHL then what we have.
