By default, i guess you can the first answer, but that wasn't my point.
but thats the point of my trade proposal.
it can work both ways.
if we give Galchenyuk couple of years in the NHL
and he becomes a star or a much better player than Couturier.
i wouldn't want to make the trade anymore.
But if Galchenyuk ends up not being better then Couts,
flyers won't want...
risky trade for both.
but i personally think the chances are that Galchenyuk will become a better player.
but that's my opinion. loll
risk for both teams but its a higher risk for the Habs since Gally is supposed to be better than Couty. I would do it as well, since Couty is in fact a quebecer but unfortunately the NHL doesn't work that way. both teams will keep their respective players no matter what nationality they are unless one of the teams offer a trade that would be stupid to refuse.
But the chances are really low for that to happen.
so keep prayin because its far from close to happenin.
What's the point? I like Galchenyuk and I also like Couturier. Sure, Couturier is more proven by virtue of being older. It doesn't discount Galchenyuk's potential, it just means couturier is one step closer. Is couturier worth more than Galchenyuk? Sure. It doesn't mean it's worth paying anything significant to make the trade though. Alex just got drafted, he could end up better, worse or the same. I mean, why sacrifice more future just to accelerate the team's top prospect development by 1 year with a switch?
Basically same reasons the Habs wouldn't trade Subban for Murray plus a 2nd.
well not really, because subban played 2 years and has proved a lot more.
he also has shown that even with a bad team he can be extremely effective.
the chances of Murray being better than subban arent as much
as the chances that Gally has to being better than couts.
