I'm just not seeing it, I guess. I think Couturier holds more value that Gormley, to be sure, but the gap isn't that between the 11th overall and the 38th overall.

The trade just seems unlikely to me--there's a lot of risk in prospect swaps, and when you start including high draft picks as well, I just don't see it as likely.

He hasn't had the same cap restrictions in the past. Unless the team is going to buy out both Bryzgalov and Briere--which I think we all think is quite unlikely--I don't see the Flyers playing the same role this year in free agency that they have in the recent past.
