I think you might be right. I also think that was/would've been an overreaction, Couturier's 10-11 was much better than Esposito's 06-07.

Another thing that I think hurt Couturier is getting the "safe" tag because he improved his defensive play, and took on a different role in the WJC (which IMO should have been considered a positive, not a strike against his offensive potential).
