And when im looking his on-ice selfish behavior, I question myself about him and the kind of teammate he must be.

And I do realy like Sean Couturier
I don't think his on ice play is selfish, but he needs to gain maturity and discipline on and off the ice, which is probably related to maturity. You don't want him to lose his exuberance but curb it a bit in different situation.

Bottom line, the negatives are pretty small but they get magnified a bit because the team crapped out last year. The positives is he has 76 points in 160 NHL games and was a +9 with tons of ice time in tough situations on a team that finished 29th last year. Signing him to a long extension should be a high priority.
