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.

Where did I say that? What does James Neal have to do with absolutely anything? How does he possibly fit into this equation at all?

RNH will be heads and shoulders a better player than James Neal if your trying to equate the 2. They are nothing alike.
