Couturier's a "safe" pick but he's kind of an obvious one to me.. his upside is a 60-70 point center with great 2 way play.. plus he's big and will use his frame.

A big reason why I am high on him is that I love Jordan Staal.. who he compares to, BUT his strengths are puckhandling and playmaking. Those are the things that Staal needs to work on in order to vault him to Kesler/Richards status.
