It isn't panic to trade Couts or Schenn for a young, good PMD.. it's smart, we have Laughton coming in, it's a position of strength so use that to build a roster weakness.
Yeah but there's nobody available right now that is worth it. Streit might be old and (soon to be) overpaid but he will give the Flyers the puck moving abilities they desperately need right now just as well as someone like Yandle or Edler even if he can't play the kinds of minutes they can. I was all for trading one of Couts or Schenn in a package for Weber last year, but I would be extremely reluctant to trade one of them for a player in the Yandle/Edler tier. Maybe next year someone better becomes available, until then let's keep our assets.
