I dont know about Schiefele or Zibanejad as i haven't watched them at that stage. The argument scouts made and they were right, was that Couturier abused his size to get points much more than using skill. And when everyone in the NHL is just as big as you, it won't work. Hes very good defensively but you can't just gauge his offensive potential right now and say hes guaranteed to do this or that as you'll be very disappointed. I personally see him as a jordan staal type player with a litte bit more upside offensively.

I'm not saying he'll be better offensively than RNH or Huberdeau but the PPG rate shows how talented he is. He will be way better than Zibenajad.
