If Couturier is going to go back to Juniors, there's no reason to signe him now.

Unless Nylander can playing 3rd line, PP, and PK with a cheap contract he might not make it. Part of it will also depend on who would be moved to the wing.
Betts led the forwards in PK icetime last year. As well as taking the overwhelmin majority of shorthanded faceoffs last year.
