You're a homer.
Theres no signs that point to Couturier not being able to be a first line center. The kid is an absolute stud in the making.
Grossman/Mezaros are a step down from Edler, but better than letting Edler walk for nothing at the end of the season.
That late first is still a first, and you never know where it will be. Last year phillys was in the early 20's.
and I will say again, that franchise goalie and franchise defenseman are a goalie we are trying to get rid of with a horrid contract and a d man who is a pending UFA.
Still dont like the deal? Add Scott Laughton. there, fixed.
Just don't see Edler wanting to leave Van with a 64 mill cap hit, why wouldn't he take the 5 mil we'd give him.
