Would anyone shed a tear then flipping Couts + 1st in 2014 (or a late 1st rounder -- pretend we get that for Briere) for a legit #1 prospect with 2 years NHL experience under his belt?
entirely hypothetical - not even probable
, but I want to know your mood. I doubt people here would care that much about losing Couts if another great forward prospect and legit D-man were coming back that quickly.
The problem with that is that you have to find a willing trading partner who has what you want. And teams generally are not lining up to trade away franchise defensemen. You may get a 2nd tier type guy, or a vet (like Timonen or Pronger) but you're not likely to get a Pietro, or OEL, or somebody like that.
