Can't forget about Couturier. He's probably the 2nd most valuable asset in that deal after Ebs. I'd be ok with moving Yak for SC/Schenn and Simmonds. They're in the east, so trading Yakupov wouldn't hurt us so much, and we add a lot of grit (that can actually play).

I also don't understand why we'd want to do the Coburn/Smid swap
