I really don't understand everyone's hurry to trade Couts. I really want to keep him, before we got Luke I would have traded Brayden over Couts. I know we need an offensive d-man, and thats a huge need we need to fill. But getting rid of Couts also puts another huge hole in our roster because we don't have another center of his calibre to play in a shutdown role.

If anything, I'm happy moving forward with:

Kimmo - Schenn
Coburn - Gus
Mesz - Grossmann

It's not the greatest defense, but it's passable. If we can I'd move Laughton + Read, maybe some picks, for someone like Edler or Goligoski. However it might be best to kick the tires and try something like that after Kimmo retires and we can get Read signed.

As good as Laughton looked this year I don't think he has the chops to replace Couts.
