Larry44 -> I weren't the one who raised the question of Couturier vs. Schenn. I just thought that even though Couturier might become better I guess that Schenn will me more suitable for a classic #2 role and Couturier for a #3 role. But like previously (when we've had Richards, Carter, Briere and Giroux to distribute) I think we'll go with 3 scoring lines even in the future, but with one with a little more shut down responisbilities.

And I'm basing my view on Schenn/Couturier on what I've seen on the ice. It's an opinion. One of few on these boards that aren't based off of stats. Based on what I've seen, compared to every other talent I've ever seen, I don't think Couturier will be a scoring machine. That doesn't mean I don't think he'll be good, he already is.

I just think it's a better chance that Couturier will become a top 10 center in this league than him becoming a top 10 in points center in this league, even though the former is much, much more hard to accomplish.
