This was never confirmed.
The rumour actually wasn't Couturier + (a combination of Meszaros, Read, Voracek and draft picks) but Couturier and Brayden Schenn +.
Shea Weber to me has around the same value as Pronger did when he was traded: 2 first round draft picks, a top6 forward and a top4 defender. Trading B.Schenn, Couturier plus Read, Meszaros or Voracek would have gutted this team for the future.

Also I'd rather have Yandle than Edler.
