Who said anything about wanting Couturier gone or moving Laughton? If Laughton makes the team, then I seriously hope the Flyers do the following:

Lecavalier - Giroux - Voracek
Simmonds - Couturier - Schenn
Hartnell - Laughton - Read
Talbot - Hall - Rinaldo

However, if the Flyers are going to go with Giroux - Lecavalier - Couturier down the middle, then no, Laughton shouldn't be playing on the fourth line and even worse, he shouldn't be playing on the wing. For anyone who's watched Laughton, his game is not that of a winger. You'd be wasting the skill set he brings to the table by putting him on the wing.
