Replaced Staal pretty nicely so far.... If Couturier is traded and we miss out I will be pissed. He would be a perfect complement to 19 and 63.

I can't believe they would even entertain offers for him. I'm sure other teams are asking for him but if moves I will be shocked.

And yeah, pissed we didn't get him if moves elsewhere.

People talk as if he's a golden god. He's a nice defensively sound young center, but as I said in the Darcy thread, certainly Flyers fans expected more than 2g, 7pts thru 25gp in his sophomore year. Philly beat writer on NHLRadio a few nights ago expressed how Couturier might not develop the offensive part of his game at this level that had him put up back to back 96 pt seasons in Drummondville.

I love Couturier, but the kid isn't Crosby

I wish we had a kid in the system like him, I'm praying Girgensons turns out like him, he's going to be awesome for the Pens.

TH2NSTATSGUY Wow, @RealStamkos91 5th in NHL history to be 'first to 20 goals' in 3 straight seasons. Conacher, M. Richard, Bobby Hull, Jagr @EliasSports

That's some pretty heady company for a guy who just turned 23.

Nobody is saying he's Crosby, nor would he have to be on this club. You're selling short his defensive abilities. He gives fits to guys like Malkin. He's precisely what this club needs.

Also, I'm not nearly as worried about his offensive upside. He was a point/game player in the AHL in the second season after he was drafted. Further, he starts a huge number of shifts in the defensive zone (38% O-zone starts) and doesn't get the prime PP time with Giroux that many of the other forwards receive. Even if he levels off as a 50-60 pt player who plays all three phases and can face elite competition, that's nothing to sneeze at. We need those things.

The chances are slim-to-none they would make that trade to a Eastern Conference team. Yeah it happens occasionally, but I'm sure they'd want to ship him out West--the rare times when a guy like that is traded in a conference would be if the team is in a situation where they HAVE to trade the guy and don't have the luxury of waiting for a good offer from the other conference, or if Mike Milbury is the GM. Richards and Carter were both shipped off to the West.

If Couturier is traded, I would believe the Sabres never had a chance because we are in their conference.

that's a horrible straw man...

no one ever refers to him as such.

Ryan Kesler, Mike Richards, Ryan Oreilly, etc... those are good comparisons.

I love couturier... i'd give an elite package to get him

Not Cory Conacher. They are clarifying its Charlie Conacher from 1909.

This is Cory Conachers first full year in the league and he does nto have 20 yet.

I think he was referring to impressive company for Stamkos (who is 23), not Cory Conacher lol.

I know that, but it's in reference to Stamkos.
His dominance as a goal scorer is amazing (I'm pretty sure he's outscored his closest competition by almost triple digits over the past three years) and he's still incredibly young.

I'm guessing the national media didn't throw a hissy fit like it did with Kaleta? That's probably worth the one-game difference.

Loktionov, example number 5001 of Regier not gambling on low cost talent, even when dressing the likes of Matt Ellis.

You can't expect the man to deal a 5th when he is already without a 4th.
