Well I like your optimism but AHL performance won't guarantee a top line spot. I also think he started the game on the top line more because of Patty's deficiencies than his own gusto.

When all was said and done, Couture got 8:44 t.o.i, was a -1 and had 1 SOG. That doesn't yet convince me he's ready to surplant any of the other forwards who all had north of 20 (except Seto, at 17:25).

He's had a great start, yes. Let's not kill the kid with expectation just yet.
