Although he looks good with Couturier and Read, I don't think too many other much cheaper players wouldn't look good there. I'd really like to see Raffl get a shot on that line.
The Flyers will likely break Laughton in the same way as they did Couturier at the 4th line center spot next year. Downie likely wouldn't have any effect on him but I do agree that we need to get a little more bigger up front & when you add in the injuries & likely price of Downie I think it would be better for us to move on.
