The last two seasons, here are Couture's most common linemates:
- Ryan Clowe (1,382min)
- Benn Ferriero (408min)
- Joe Pavelski (389min)
- Dany Heatley (370min)
- Patrick Marleau (351min)

...and Duchene:
- Milan Hejduk (990min)
- David Jones (497min)
- Paul Stastny (405min)
- Tomas Fleischmann (285min)
- Daniel Winnik (272min)

I think their linemates are a little closer in quality than you think... Better players? Sure. Much better? Not really..

coutures 2nd season 56 points in 79 games

duchenes 3rd season 28 points in 58 games
coutures 3rd sesaon 65 points in 80 games

if you actually take points per game

duchene is at 0.68 points per game.
couture is at .70 points per game.
...if only that was an accurate way to judge forwards...
