You should probably find a better way to say that, then. Looking at the Sharks roster, a guy like TJ Galiardi falls into the "not very good" category. Couture falls into the "young, still developing consistent 60+ point centerman" category.
Couture is already a 1st line center on a handful of NHL teams, and he's not even done developing. The Leafs would probably trade you their entire 2013 draft + "Kadri and Franson" (haha, the usual Leafs trade proposal subjects) for him. At least.
