I'd rather end up with 3 1sts total in this draft by trading Coburn and Laughton, and use McGinn and Cousins as secondary pieces if need be. Having 3 of Zadorov, Ristolainen, Monahan, Pulock, Lindholm, Mantha, etc. is going to be better for the team than just Jones. If deals centered around Coburn and Laughton can get us 1sts that would see us drafting especially those 1st 3 players, I'd do it in a heartbeat. They're just too damn good to pass up. Couturier in my mind is also too damn good to even consider trading. He's a player worth sticking with and giving the time to develop.
My problem with this is who is going to be willing to trade their #1 defenseman that is already established? I really can't think of any team off the top of my head.
