Re-read. No one said he's worth Hall or anything of the sort to the Oilers or in a vacuum but it would require an overpayment to get him out of Philly cause we have no incentive otherwise. Couts fills a need here, if we trade him for Eberle, who would just be replacing Voracek on the first line RW aka he's not needed, a new hole on the roster would be opened. Everyone of the past god knows how many cup winning teams have had a bona fide defensive stalwart at center, that's Couturier for us.

Multiple people told you the teams aren't good trading partners, why is that so hard to understand?

Btw, no one wanted "to get rid of" Couturier last year because the 19/20 year old center, in his second pro year, getting the toughest minutes on a terrible team in a shortened season, struggled a bit.
