I'd call Couturier a two-way player, not just a defensive one. He led the Q in scoring at 16, he's got LOADS of offensive talent and instincts. When he grows into his frame, I am confident he's going to have a great career.

The reason MPS is not getting traded is simple. His potential is too much for the Oilers to give up, but the fact he's still too unproven (not that I think he won't prove it) for a team to give up a king's ransom for him, to make it worth the Oilers' while.

It's the same reason we didn't want to trade JVR two years ago.
