No one is unmovable. Especially a 1st pairing defenseman on a team that has a surplus of them and has their entire young core moving towards restricted free agency.
Not to mention a team that really struggles to score
. I'm not saying that Couturier is fair value for Shattenkirk or that he has proven that he can help the least bit scoring-wise.
All I'm saying is that Blues fans and all fans in general (including Flyers fans) should be willing to work towards proposals that provide fair value. That's the purpose of the forum, it's not to shoot down deals immediately that could represent fair value. If someone wants Pietrangelo tell them they need to give up Giroux. That's more effective than always replying with "he's not available." That just takes the fun out of it.
So you're saying a team that struggles to score should trade and offensive defenceman for a forward that scores less points?
