Opinions aside, and I like couturier, if we were to take a forward with the 1st, I think it at least strengthens the chance that Couts is traded.
I think it is easy to say that it would, but I'm not 100 percent sure its true. The player who would make Couturier "expendable" in this scenario (I'm not convinced) is Lauhgton, who's already in the system. If we draft say, Monahan, then obviously something has to give at some point--but who's to say that it doesn't end up being Laughton who gets moved then, with the assumption that the line-up, long-term, shapes out like this:

Hartnell-Giroux-Voracek
Schenn-Couturier-Simmonds
_____-Monahan-Read

I really don't believe that you're going to get enough value for Couturier right now to make it worthwhile to move him.
