For example, the Canadian never admit that there have been talks with the Philadelphia Flyers about his controversial defender, a thoroughbred that will always be hard to tame and whose attitude could possibly irritate Therrien . It happened some time after the Flyers had lost the opportunity to add Shea Weber with their training despite a hostile bid as fabulous as ridiculous: 14 years and $ 110 million. The kind of agreement, later equaled by the Nashville Predators
During the interview between Bergevin and his counterpart Paul Holmgren, one of the names mentioned was obviously the young sensation Sean Couturier, the first round pick of the Flyers two years ago, which has shown great things after winning one position 18. It is said that one who most insisted that the name be removed from the Couturier discussion coach Peter Laviolette who sees in his soup. This has not been a problem since Couturier believes that is closely linked to the future of the Flyers. seeking information that another Canadian was not discussed with the Flyers only about Subban has been confirmed . Who knows what is really going on in this strange issue that leaves many confused?
This was all translated by google, so there might be a few mistakes in here.
Also Dustin Leed pointed out on twitter that the conversations are on going, plus Eklund also said the same. Eklunds report came out awfully close to the RDS post though, so it might be him just trying to get hits.
couturier is my favorite player in flyers(i like to watch rising stars)...so i hope we never trade him someone like subban. no offence to subban and i think he would be great add to our defence but no if it includes losing couturier. we really dont have any good pieces to give back so i just hope this goes away....or something like prospect+2x1st max.
I'm all for getting Subban, but not at the expense of Couturier. However, it has been well documented that this team is need of defenders, so it may not be as bad as some are thinking. I still wouldn't do it though.
If Couts gets moved for PK, will go down as the worst decison in Holmer's history
Holy overreaction. I probably wouldn't want to move Couturier for Subban either, but there are much worse trades he could make than that.

No, they wouldn't give up Couturer + Schenn +++ for Weber. If they wouldn't give up Couturier for Weber, then that was a horrible decision by Holmgren and would go down as one of the worst non-trades he could make. Acquire a bonafide #1 d-man, something this team needs arguably more than anything.

I've seen him make a few game-changing offensive plays...but I've also seen him make a few really awful game-changing defensive mistakes.
he can hit people which is enough for some Flyer fans. I wouldnt be opposed to adding him. At the right price of course.
People still seem to think the Flyers can easily trade a top 6/9 forward for a defender. They really cant. Unless you think Fedotenko can be a full time top 6 winger.
I wonder what Subban is asking for, and I really wonder just how eager the Habs are at trading him. In all honesty I doubt the talks about a trade were serious IMO
