Well, I think what they were doing was delaying that decision as long as possible. They planned to give Couturier his 9 or 10 games (depending upon your favorite wording in the CBA). If Couturier flopped, the decision is made for them, and they don't have to do a thing (as far as deciding where he fits. They'd still have to make minor maneuvers for some cap space.). If Couturier sticks, as he appears to be doing, now they realize they've got to figure out how they plan to fit everyone in the lineup.

Better to wait, than to make room for Schenn, only to have Couturier get sent back, and now we made room for nothing.
