I don't necessarily disagree with what you mean but these concepts to me are highly variable. E.g. what constitutes a building block or a successful one is highly dependent on what the other blocks are and there are varying degrees of what constitutes a building block, imo. To only list 3 building blocks on a team that has more like 6 key players doesn't ring true. I think you're giving Kane and Hossa the short end of the stick.

Yes, I would trade Nichushkin and Miller for Couturier. I also am not as certain in Couturier's offensive potential as you are, but I'm more comfortable with what he's certain to bring than what Nichushkin is certain to bring, while it's easier to pick up some 20 goal scorer type wingers in free agency if you need a bit of scoring help in a given year.
