The lower Couturier should play at this point is 3rd line.
I could even see a case for him centering the 2nd line.

He's been playing 3rd-4th line and is 2-2-4 in 6 games with a +4 +/-

And I know the boy can sustain a 82 games schedule.

I don't see how some can make a case of Schenn being able too moreso than Couturier.

I don't even want this to become a Schenn or Couturier scenario, but let's admit that Couturier is making a much stronger case for himself as of now than a 10 games stint on the team.

If Laviolette is rational about his case, he got to follow up accordingly.

How about a line of Voracek-Couturier-Briere?
