I don't know how many times on this website I have to hear about a player who's playing with mediocre line mates, not getting PP time (or 1st PP time, which it'll be next for Couturier when he doesn't produce like Flyers fans want him to), and playing in a shut down role means if the player was put in a better offensive role they'd be a "2 way, Selke Caliber, PPG forward". It's one of the most annoying things to hear and just about every fan base does it with someone (i.e., Ryan O'Reilly).

RNH has more offensive potential than Couturier. Couturier is massively overrated by Flyers fans.



Agreed.



Hah, I used that comparison with one of my friends and they got mad. Too bad they have a lot in common. Players that fell. Were considered steals after good first years. Etc.
So your saying that James Neal would of put up the same numbers if he wasn't with Maklin
