He's safe to be a 2nd line center - Zibanejad has the upside to be a 1C and the minimum to be a 3C - lots of variance in his projection - if he meets his total potential he will be better than Couts - but that's about the only way... Either way Hamilton was the BPA so I don't know why we always compare to Couts.
