Couturier was a much better offensive forward than Staal was coming out of juniors. Couturier could potentially be a #1 center that plays Selke caliber defense. However, like Staal, he is stuck on a team that is deep at center so he might get pigeon-holed into more of a defensive role.

I don't really see Gally's ceiling being much higher if at all. For me he is also a risk because he missed the entire season and you're relying on hope that he would have continued to progress from his 16 year old season. We also don't really how his knee will hold up over a full season.
