The problem is that Couturier is being compared to the wrong Staal. It's not Jordan that they should be comparing him to, it's Eric. Jordan was never an elite offensive player and the numbers prove Jordan was never elite - http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p....php?pid=80489. Now, compare Couturier to Eric and Eric's numbers - http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p....php?pid=55283 - and there's a better comparison. They also play a very similar game.

Gotta agree with Shafer on this one. If Couturier only puts up 20 - 25 goals and 60 points, then it's a major disappointment, even if he plays world class caliber defense. He can do so much more than just 60 points and defensive play.
