Philly seems like the perfect trading partner. Out of conference, starving for a top-pairing defenceman, and three strong centers, the one position that Phoenix desperately needs to address.

Start with one of Brayden Schenn or Couturier and then add......
Yeah Philly is a no brainer in all of this. They have the pieces to do it, and everything else you mentioned. Couturier is a hell of a starting point. Probably Couturier, B prospect and first round pick. It's a big price but Yandle is a young top 4 guy who can eat a ton of minutes, plus like you said he's signed for a while.
