I totally agree with you. Couturier is needed here for a lot of reason and one is size. You can't coach that. Not saying that Laughton is a weak player but Couturier's 6'4" is tough to pass away. If Laughton and Read can't get you a good defenseman, stay pat. Laughton/Read and #11 should get you close to the top pick in the draft or a Shattenkirk type defenseman.
