I don't know. I don't think Couturier would be terrible if he stayed up by any means, but at the same time another year in juniors won't really hurt him either. The main problem though is the salary cap. If Couturier is on the 4th line, that would mean that Schenn is on the third I would assume, and then we are really in a tight spot if we get any injuries. If we could somehow fit in a fourth line of Couturier-Betts-Talbot, I wouldn't mind seeing that though, but I'm not so sure that is possible cap-wise.
