I don't see how trading a good young player for another good young player is not properly building a team. Not properly building a team would be sticking with what you have and letting a weakness stay weak when you could upgrade that position without damaging a position of strength. And once again, I must stress that I am not saying to trade Couturier for peanuts or anything like that. I don't know what I would or wouldn't trade him for. But I think it is pretty clear that there is a log-jam at center on this team and a glaring weakness on the blue line. It is not a stretch to think that one of the centers will be dealt. If one is dealt, Couturier likely will net the Flyers the best return.
And the forward corps' defensive ability will be put in the chipper, to the point where the team isn't really coming out ahead.
