Couturier is not a great skater and I think taking Zibby over him came down to the fact that Ottawa is trying to build and elite skating team cantered around Karlsson - Couturier isn't really the type of Center you think of on a high tempo, attack team.

I'd be more in the Dougie Hamiton boat, if we had him coming up this year and Ceci the next our D would look to be elite - then again if we didn't have a fast, big bodied attack style forward we would be missing him as Stone is slow, Silf is a skill player and the rest of your forward prospects are small top 6 guys (Prince, De Costa, Petersoon) or big grinders (Grant, Maidens)

Maybe we use Zibby in a package for an elite player - maybe if Anaheim stumbles this year we do:

Ana: Zibby, Ott 1st 2013, Bishop, Hoffman
Ott: Corey Perry
