I know that the value is there, but does either side make this trade?
In that situation, if I'm Marc Bergevin and ABSOLUTELY want a French player for whatever reason, I trade down one rank, and draft Jonathan Drouin.

This is one of the reasons that these trade proposals confuse me. Last summer when Philly offered sheeted Shea Weber, it was speculated in the threads if Philly would have added Couturier to a mix of other players, Nashville would have let Weber go. So now Couturier is not worth an unproven (in the NHL) prospect. Because right now Shea Weber is better than Jones.

i can see how some would see that. Especially considering jones has such great potential.

However, what couturier provides for us is something no one else provides for us, and very few in the league can provide as well.

If we can get our hands on Drouin or Mackinnon no freakin way we are trading our 1st pick. Plus Seth Jones wouldn't be bad either to play along side a fellow brother in Subban, Those two could be pretty awesome together.

But i excpect the habs to be better than a lottery team this year so i don't see this happening. Couturier would be tempting but we cannot trade the right assets for him we need them too much.
