In all honesty I dont like comparing rookies to established players or retired players on there way to the HHOF. not fair to either player. I just hope Couturier continues to get better and turn into a really good player for us.
I guess you could argue that Jeff Carter > Rod Brind'Amour...he's (Carter) a pretty good 2-way player and if he can stay on the ice and off IR he should be a better offensive player than Brindy was. But it's close, and you're getting presumably 8 more years of Couturier. If Couturier turns out to be Brindy the deal's a slam-dunk win for Homer even if Voracek got hit by a bus tomorrow.
