I'm not saying it is ideal, but I don't see the point in moving Couturier for Schneider.
I love couturier as much as the next guy, but lets face it, with both Couturier and Laughton in our hands, one of them is our best trading chip to fill one of this teams glaring holes. And which one of them holds more value? Couturier.

But actually Laughton could fit their needs as well:

How's this plan?

Laughton, Meszaros and a 2nd for Schneider

Briere to Boston for a 1st

Coburn and a 3rd to Phoenix for a 1st and Rundblad

Flyers win the lottery! Rejoice!
We hold: 1st pick, 21st pick (Phoenix), 28th pick (Boston)

1 - Seth Jones
21 - Anthony Mantha
28 - Robert Haag

Sign Al Montoya

Jones and Mantha make the team out of camp.

Hartnell - Giroux - Voracek
Mantha - Schenn - Simmonds
Gagne - Couturier - Read
Rinaldo - Talbot - McGinn

Timonen - Jones
Schenn - Rundblad
Grossmann - Manning/Bourdon/Gervais
