Look everyone understands the flyers need defenseman in their prospect pool. It's no secret, but when you start reaching for players because of a need, you make bad picks. Then when those players don't develop like everyone wants them to, people get mad we took him there. You need to go best player to ensure the best chance the player has to succeed.
You are right. I corrected my post.
I was not thinking clearly when I submitted it.
I do not think we should trade Couturier for a defensive prospect,
that might not become top four defenseman.
I would be in favor of trading Coots for an established top offensive defenseman.
Laughton is a different situation, its prospect for prospect if we trade him.
