The Flyers won't being getting a #1 defensemen even for Couturier but I think they could upgrade with a few smart trades without trading him. I would try Talbot for Adam Clendening from Chicago. The Blackhawks are probably going all in this year. I would also see if Coburn + Read could get Bouwmeester. Maybe add a 2014 2nd rd pick if need be or another midlevel prospect. Get rid of Meszaros and make a play for Smid or Hainsey in the offseason with his old salary.

Bouwmeester - Smid
Timmonen-Schenn
Grossman-Clendening

It's not great but its better than this year.
