I was going to cry if we drafted him at 25/would have been livid if we traded up at the draft. I was shocked(pleasantly surprised?) that someone took him just outside the top 10.

Simmonds is who I'd be looking at if we're getting anyone from Philly. The only way I'd trade for Couturier is if we have another deal lined up to trade Plekanec for a ransom(Like to New Jersey for Larsson+). I just don't think Sean is as good as people give him credit as being. The main reason we could use him is we don't have centers that can win faceoffs.
This isn't NHL14... No way the Devils even consider trading us Larsson (And they'd even add something?!) for Plekanec.

As for Morin, he's raw, but I'd LOVE to have him on this team. A package of Morin and Simmonds would be very tempting. I don't see a need in Couturier for the simple fact we already have way too many top 9 centers around. We'd ideally need to get rid of two before even thinking of adding someone else.

And I'd rather go after B. Schenn than Couturier if I had the choice, but they won't separate the Schenn brothers at his point unless we're willing to take both of them I'd bet (not that I'd be against inquiring about Luke as well, I actually kind of like his game).
