Scheifele was definitely not ready which isn't the case with Couturier.

I don't think it will hurt his development at all. My only concern is not wasting his entry level contract on a 4th line role. He will be RFA the same year Meszaros and Read will reach UFA status while Schenn and Giroux will be restricted. We might have to waive goodbye to one of the centers that summer. If he isn't going to be used in a top 9 role it would be wiser to delay his contract a year.
