Even if Couturier is our 3rd line C and thus far in his career he is excelling better defensively then offensively, if we can get him along with a second line player that can bring physicality aka Simmonds I think we win the trade.
I disagree because we need a defenceman who can step in as a #1 for a season or two until (hopefully) Nurse or Ekblad can handle it. This is why I am going so hard for Tyutin lately. Guy is a stud and can be had for not a kings ransom. Imagine our D in two years.

Tyutin-Petry
Nurse-Ekblad
Klefbom-J.Schultz
