I'd still rather see Couturier playing with better complimentary players. He's a solid two-way defenseman, but with Schenn and Simmonds on his line he could be more valuable to the team than with Talbot and NoGoal.
On another Read related note, now ESPN is saying he looks like a Calder candidate. Seems like they aren't even trying these days (or any days in the last five or so years). I thought he looked good no doubt overall, much better in the second game, but it's been two games. Just because Bob McKenzie says he's a Calder candidate I feel like ESPN jumped on the bandwagon. He's a good player, but I can't see him winning the Calder with the other competition he's facing, even on his own team. I wonder if Bob McKenzie said Nodl looks like an Art Ross candidate if ESPN would start saying that too?
Its only going to take a few games for a lot of people to jump on this bandwagon... this kid is legit.
