Fair enough regarding Toews. I thought he scored about ten points less a season than he did, but I think you can still get my point.

As for as Couturier producing with greater opportunity....he's not landeskog, that's definitely true. Landeskog had an amazing season. But if you look at Couturier's production per60, and look at his qualcomp and most common linemates, and zone starts, and the stats suggest the potential for impressive production.
