Yep, you're pretty much preaching to the knows-what-types-of-players-it-takes-to-win-championships, crowd. I'll say it again, if the rumor about Couts being available for a top winger are true... And we somehow get him for Pominville... *has massive brain anyeurism*
If Regier pulls that deal off, he needs to stay. 18 months ago, Buffalo had Roy, Leino, Adam, and Gaustad at center (with Ennis on the team).
If that deal happens, they'd have Hodgson, Ennis, Couturier, Grigorenko, Girgensons.....
It's really not. There's a reason he's being dangled.
Couturier? He's not being dangled.
And if he was it has more to do with his GM being an idiot than his on-ice play. Like I said a week ago Holmgrem would trade a 22 year old 80pt player for a 21 year old 79pt player if he could. He trades just to trade.
