This is exactly what I've been trying to say. Everyone knew Couturier was more NHL ready than Zibanejad so it boggles my mind when people are so surprised that Couturier is doing better now than Zibanejad. Heck, not like Zibanejad has totally been nothing. Just look at his WJC performance. Zibanejad is still more raw and to me he hasn't come close to scratching the surface, Couturier is more accustomed to the NA game and such.

I'm not saying that Couturier will stop progressing on his season last year, I'm just saying that in 2-3 years, Zibanejad will be the better player.
