Logan Couture

This kid has looked great and could develop into a good 1C. What would it take for the Leafs to get him? Probably less than Getzlaf right?

Actually no. Couture is younger and cheaper than Getzlaf plus he will be RFA after his contract ends in 2014. He is also our heir apparent for our 1C position when Thornton retires.

Not many teams will trade a 30-goal scorer (he has 20 already this year) and a rookie of the year candidate in his second year. He also just re-signed here at just a shade under $3 million for the next two years.

It would take a massive, massive overpayment. Getzlaf is better, but Couture is very valuable to Sharks.

Couture is such a good player, the Sharks have no reason to give him up unless a better C with a better contract is coming back.

Couture is a stud. Comes up big at clutch times. Signed a reasonable contract and will be the future of the franchise as Thornton and Marleau's games start to fall off.

Yeah ... no. We have no prospects that can match Couture's potential. He's already a great young forward (and All-Star) for us. San Jose is very happy with Couture, and we have no reason to even think about trading him. He is a big part of the future and present of this franchise.

There is nothing that the Leafs could offer. Kessel is the only player who I'd take over Couture but he's a winger and has a much more expensive contract.

I would venture to say that Couture is the single most valuable player on the Sharks. He isn't available, period.

edit: and yes, before you ask, I would trade (disregarding NMC's) Thornton, Marleau, Boyle or Burns before I would trade Logan.

His value is a 2007 1st and 2nd round pick, which unfortunatly you traded for Mark Bell and Vesa Toskala.

Just think, Logan could eaisly be a Leaf right now without all this talk.

Couture is the future of the Sharks and is being groomed to take over the 1C position once Thornton retires. So yeah he's not available outside of an obvious kings ransom.

Getzlaf is much much better, but Couture has the advantage of contract/age on his side. He is not worth as much but similar value to Bobby Ryan.

There is just no practical way Couture gets moved anytime soon, he is being groomed to be the leader of the sharks much as Marleau was

Unless it's a crazy overpayment (ex: Kessel, Lupul, Schenn, Colborne, and a 1st - yeah, it would never happen, DUH!), not going to happen. He is too important to the Sharks at the moment.
