Listen to what Ferraro says at 1:38 of this clip. "the best Swedish player in the back half of the game was Mika Zibanejad.."
That's the type of player you look for when you draft. That's the type of player that wins you Stanley Cups. As the desperation increases and the intensity goes through the roof, a player that thrives and stands out is gold. A player who shines brightest when the game is on the line.
This was Couturier's biggest knock in 2011. That he wasn't a big game player. That he packed it up in the playoffs and didn't have that moxy. That is why we passed on him and took this type of player.
One day Zibby will win us a cup, and everyone will shut up.
