Couturier was heavily insulated by the Flyers last year. And, despite that farce of a first round, they have a strong team overall (if you ignore the nutball in goal). This might be a case where the kid pretty much hits 90% of his potential in his rookie season, and doesn't progress noticably stat-wise beyond this point.

And if the rumors in his draft year about a lack of work ethic are true, chances are his first year success will give the kid a false sense of security in his NHL job and this sophomore seasn might even see a dip in his play.
