I think that a better option might be something like Laughton + pick (say a 3rd) for Edm 1st this year. I fully understand that this deal would have to be made at the time of the draft and that the centers Edm was looking at were off the board and they felt that Laughton would be a better option. The Flyers could potentially draft two top dmen in the first 11 picks this year and they keep Couturier too. This seems to me to be the most logical potential for a trade between the two teams.
I'm happy with Monahan or Nurse as they both fill a need.
