Which one would they give up? Apparently Couturier's hockey IQ is extremely high, everyone knows about Giroux, Schenn's a huge talent, Simmonds brings them an element of toughness, van Riemsdyk's size and skill is rare, Voracek is a solid set up man - very gifted with puck, Matt Read has a solid offensive upside and even Eric Wellwood is going to be a solid 3rd line guy who can shut down opposing players and play strong PK minutes. Then you have the vets Briere, Hartnell, Jagr.
When you compare it with the Vcr forwards....big difference.....you have to say AV gets more out of his roster than most coaches. After S+S+K+E+Borrows+goalie Vcr has very little IMO
