I'm not sure on this but - Couturier can play 8 games without an ELC and then be sent back to juniors - right?

Anyway - I firmly believe that if Couturier plays well and the GM feels he can handle a full NHL season - they will dump somebody else and fit him in. The ELC Kessel just got does not decrease his chances IMO.
