Trading Couturier just opens up a huge hole on the PK and on match ups against the opposition's best lines. People automatically assume that Laughton can fill in for him seamlessly, but that thinking is ridiculous.

Furthermore, what is Couturier's value at the moment? If some team was willing to overpay and send over a near NHL ready blue chip defensive prospect or a young defenseman who can play in the top 4 real soon, I'd probably be okay with it. I truly doubt he's going to return that right now, so I'm not keen on trading him.
