Scheen has played almost 100 more games then all of these players yet he is by far the worst of the group.
To say Couturiere is a slam dunk over Zibby is a complete joke right now.
Look at the 2010 draft, top 10 picks like Burmistov and Neiderytter - I'd rather have Mark Stone drafted at #178 then BOTH of those guys and he's never even scored an NHL goal
I didn't really like Luke Schenn to begin with.
When have Pietrangelo, Karlsson and Myers struggled in pro hockey like Zib is this year?
When has Luke Schenn ever outscored any of those guys? Cause Couturier is blowing Zib out of the water offensively in the AHL this year.
Honestly, this is a horrible comparison because Schenn is a defensive d-man, and the other teams are much better run than the Leafs, didn't rush their players.
Even if Zib equals Couturier offensively, which is possible, Couturier will still be better because of his defensive dominance. That's the main reason why I'm saying there's a slim chance.
