Don't just flame, I mean I'm ready to see some young highly respected D-men on this team and I'd be willing to give up most of our "untouchables" to do this, but I'm not so sure any of you would be.

I'd do something like 2013 2nd + 2014 1st + Read/Couturier

FOR

2013 1st (Draft Jones)

Then at #4 or 5 we take Nurse

Crazy?
Ballsy?
Flat Out INSANE?
No. And, if the organization is smart, neither player will debut with the Flyers until they've spent at least a year or two in the minors. Defensemen take a whole lot of time and patience to develop and reach their projected ceilings if they ever do. The team would probably do better to draft a talented forward and then use Couturier+ to trade for a #1 or #2 defenseman since Laughton makes Couts expendable.
