I really think Cooter (yes, I'm sticking with this name), will struggle big time if he makes the big club. He physically can't handle the players and he certainly can't outskate them.
I agree they are much better skaters, but I don't agree that Couturier physically can't handle the players. He is bigger than Brayden Schenn and no one has concerns about Schenn not being able to handle the physicality of the league.
