(Just sorting out a value debate on our board--I'm surveying the teams who figure to be drafting ahead of the Flyers to see whether trading up is any kind of an option--and if so, at what cost).
I would think it is a pretty easy no from all teams

previous #7 picks (likely PHI pick this year)

Year Player Pos. Drafted From Drafted By
2012 Mathew Dumba D Red Deer (WHL) Minnesota Wild
2011 Mark Scheifele C Barrie (OHL) Winnipeg Jets
2010 Jeff Skinner C Kitchener (OHL) Carolina Hurricanes
2009 Nazem Kadri C London (OHL) Toronto Maple Leafs
2008 Colin Wilson C Boston U. Nashville Predators
2007 Jakub Voracek C Halifax (QMJHL) Columbus Blue Jackets

previous #8 picks (where Couturier was drafted)

2012 Derrick Pouliot D Portland (WHL) Pittsburgh Penguins
2011 Sean Couturier
C Drummondville (QMJHL) Philadelphia Flyers
2010 Alex Burmistrov C Barrie (OHL) Atlanta Thrashers
2009 Scott Glennie C Brandon (WHL) Dallas Stars
2008 Mikkel Boedker LW Kitchener (OHL) Phoenix Coyotes
2007 Zach Hamill C Everett (WHL) Boston Bruins

Previous #1 picks

2012 Nail Yakupov RW Sarnia (OHL) Edmonton Oilers
2011 Ryan Nugent-Hopkins C Red Deer (WHL) Edmonton Oilers
2010 Taylor Hall LW Windsor (OHL) Edmonton Oilers
2009 John Tavares C London (OHL) New York Islanders
2008 Steven Stamkos C Sarnia (OHL) Tampa Bay Lightning
2007 Patrick Kane RW London (OHL) Chicago Blackhawks

Their is no chance that a team moves the chance at Jones/MacKinnon for Couturier + 7/8 pick on a value standpoint.
