I may be a bigger fan of Couturier than most, but I still rank him behind Giroux in terms of value moving forward on this team. Laughton may very well be able to slide into that 3rd line center role but that doesn't mean we have to trade Couturier. He isn't the only young, attractive asset in the organization.
