Even playing wing, Couture doesn't really fit the mold of what we are looking for. He is talented for sure, but we've had alot of players with his kind of skill set and/or mentality masquerading around in our bottom six (Wellwood, Bernier, Pyatt, Samuelsson, Demitra, etc.) and it hasn't worked out well. Out top six is pretty well set, and with guys like Hodgson and maybe Schroeder or Shirokov pushing for a position who may end up in our bottom six anyway, I don't see why we need Couture at the wing or down the middle.
