Just curious here, what about something around



Dougie Hamilton



Sean Couturier

Could be another JVR - Schenn type trade. Flyers have Giroux and Schenn as their first two centers, and recieve a potential #1 to help their longterm defence.

Boston loses their defence prospect but gains a top shutdown center, who is big and also has top line potential.

Why does Boston need another center?

So many reasons to not do this but first and foremost the Bruins have a loaded top six and Dougie's the best Bruins D prospect in a long long time. The value's not far off but Bruins have absolutely no reason to do this.

I guess I just don't see why Boston does this. Pretty pointless for them. For one, they could just go after O'Reilly if they really wanted too. Two, they have Bergeron, Krejci, Seguin, Kelly, Peverly... they don't need another center. Hamilton has helped them a lot this year already and I doubt they're going to give him up for a player they don't need.

Does Philadelphia want a do over? No.

Philadelphia wants Couturier AND Hamilton. While it would theoretically be nice to get Hamilton for Couturier and slide Laughton in there, I don't think the Flyers' brass has any intention of moving Couturier. I don't know if I'd like to trade Couturier for Hamilton either, but having a young, potential #1 defenseman with size would be nice.

Hamilton is the guy the Bruins want, he fits what they need, it wouldn't make sense to move him for a center or anyone unless a team really overpaid.

I'm sure the Bruins wouldn't mind having Couturier without moving Hamilton, but I agree, these aren't players that their teams are just going to trade when both of them have such great potential. They both could be core players on their teams for many years and both teams are happy to have them.

One team trades strength for need. The other trades need for strength? Makes zero sense for the B's.

Hamilton fill a HUGE void in Boston, he's not going anywhere.

However value is good, OP just didnt account for Boston's needs.

value is fair, but does not consider Boston needs so they decline.

We are ecstatic that you took Couterier before Hamilton. Why would we deal him?

Honestly Hamilton is arguably the most untouchable player on the Bruins right now. The Bruins have no one else who can even begin to replace what he has for a skill-set

Hamilton has been better than the Bruins could have ever expected up to this point, and really does look like a guy who will be a #1 franchise guy for a decade or two
