Mac/Drouin will most likely be on the team next year, Nurse will take some development time most likely.

Trade Coburn, Couturier
Buyout Briere
Replace Short term with Mac/Drouin, Hainsey/Streit/Scuderi/White, Laughton
Long term with Nurse
The only point in moving Couturier for 2nd/3rd overall is to get Jones for Coburn + Couturier.

Though I don't agree with that reasoning, there's an argument to be made for having both Jones and Nurse in the pool. And if Nurse comes off the board before you pick, then you're stuck with a forward who will likely not be as good as Couturier, making the trade pretty pointless.

Other than that though, what's the point in trading Coburn on top of Couturier to end up with MacKinnon or Drouin? It's a stupid trade.
