Was there a potentialy great defenseman available when we chose Laughton? I don't know only time will tell. So basically we had no first round picks, which are the only ones that are really worth much in my opinion, from 2008-2010. That means our only real option was to trade for someone since we didnt have any draft picks.

Would you trade Couts, Coburn, 2013 First, 2014 First for Pietrangelo. Because that would be very similar to that Pronger trade. The biggest difference would be in the age of the player we receive.
I would be okay with that type of trade for Pietrangelo.
I would prefer to trade Couts, Coburn, 2013 First, 2015 First, instead though.
2014 draft is in Philadelphia, would be nice to have 1st round pick.
