Haha Toronto wants Coburn to be another Gunnarsson and Philly wants Gunnarsson so they have another Coburn. I don't believe either team can afford to trade their mobile positionally sound D.

As a Leafs fan, I do not want Couturier for his asking price. If we assume his price is Gardiner and our 1st, I would rather have 2 puck moving D in Rielly and Gardiner with McClement playing shut down & Bolland as the 3C (+ our first) then have only Rielly and 3 Centers who are capable 3Cs who can sub into 2C.

We have plenty of C depth when we are healthy. No need for any new Centers unless Bolland or McClement walk or a #1 becomes available.
