He was drafted a year before Couts
He was #15 overall....Couts #8
1 year experience in NHL....Couts 2
This year NHL points...13....Couts 15
This year AHL points...19....Couts 28

I guess you think Schwartz has no value as well?
Or maybe, just maybe, we are looking for an immediate upgrade and not trading for a player who could *potentially* be an upgrade. And then there are those of us who don't think Couturier's offensive game won't develop like many claim.
