That's not a price I would have wanted the Flyers to pay.
Silfverberg doesn't have the potential or the ability to have as big an impact as Couturier. He'll be a nice complimentray piece that can play on the wing on the second or third line. He's younger than Read, but I doubt he goes on to be that much better of an offensive player than Read.
Noesen is a better prospect than Cousins. I'm starting to think Cousins is at least 2-3 seasons away from cracking an NHL roster. Noesen might step in on Anaheim's roster this year. He's much closer to Laughton in terms of value.
I wouldn't have given up that package for Ryan either. I was just taking a shot at the crazy returns that Anaheim fans thought he would garner.
