What we lack Is a true bonafide #1 defenseman or a young blue chip prospect with the potential to be a bonafide #1 defenseman.

None of the guys you mentioned fix our defense, they simply add a new face into the mix, and that is not nearly enough incentive to trade anyone of importance from our core, not to mention the fact that the schenns are likely a package deal now that they're together, and it would take a ridiculous overpayment to pry them from the flyers. I honestly think that Couturier would be more likely to be traded than brayden schenn, and the absolute only possible way Couts is traded is if we're getting a blue chip defense prospect with an equally high ceiling. (Think someone along the lines of Reilly, Murray, Gormley etc.)
