I'm with also with others that there's very little to no chance that Morin gets moved as well. He's a big part of the blue line future and to part with him could be a potentially devastating blow to the corps.
I agree partly. I want to keep Couturier 100% but I can see Homers logic. If they feel they need a potential top line winger to get Giroux and even Voracek going I can see them trading Couturier. They might feel that Berube's system could work maybe not as good with Couturier but could still work. The team is having problems scoring and I do think that is Homers focus.
Obviously with the way Yakupov is playing it would be foolish to expect him to start playing lights out when on a line with Giroux.
