Mez has almost trade value because of constant injuries, but I really do like him as a Flyer. I'd say Laughton gets traded before Couts, and same with Cousins, even though I'd love to keep all 3 around. Read, especially with his value right now, I think he goes no where. No reason to ship him out. Feds, I feel anyways, is doing more than Talbot this season. Timonen, I know some have said to ship him out, but who else can we get? He's our only decent PMD, and I can't trust Gus (probably ever) to really take his place.
The Flyers have no chance of getting a top pairing defenseman unless they trade players like Couturier and Read. You have to give to get. Other teams aren't going to trade their highly valued assets for Laughton/Cousins. They are going to want one of B. Schenn or Couturier. I am a big fan of Read as well but he is not as important as Voracek, Simmonds, or Hartnell. Read's value will decrease tremendously once he gets a new deal. Not that he is a bad player, but he is a steal at 900k.
