I think that the Flyers management was really surprised with the way Couturier played in camp. I think they'd planned for another year in junior for him, and have Betts or Holmstrom as our 4th line center. Lehtivuori returning to Europe opened up a contract spot, but then Homer signed Kessel, something I doubt he'd do if they'd counted on Couturier staying up.

We've gotten Read, Zolnierczyk and Holmstrom, plus Akeson is having a pretty solid rookie year in the AHL based on numbers at least, out of all of these extra signings out of college/overage juniors, so it's worked out pretty well. Still, it's not a good idea to be at the limit.
