In terms of his defensive game, there's no doubt that it is very weak. It can be improved, but right now, it well below average compared to the other top-5 to 8 potential first rounders.
Yea, I still think Couturier slipping to #8 was a big mistake. There was definitely alot of noteworthy prospects picked that year, but I'm still surprised that Larsson and Couturier slipped out of the top 3.
