Anyway, I think there are a few teams (CGY, NSH) who would strongly consider trading out of #1 for #8+Couturier--I don't think you'd even have to include Read. I'm not advocating it--it is a huge risk--but if we're going to move Couturier for a defensive prospect, you might as well explore it.

As I've said a dozen times, though, I'd much rather trade the 8th overall for a defensive prospect than move Couturier.
Then that's where our opinions differ.

It's not that I dislike couturier, in fact I'm a big fan of couturier. I just think he'd be better suited bringing us a piece that will better serve our team in the future, because I don't believe he will reach his potential here behind Giroux and Schenn and I think Laughton can step in and be effective as the 3C next season. I really don't think losing Couturier would be that detrimental to this team moving forward. It might actually be beneficial of you can bolster the d cores potential.
