Let me remind you that Couturier had 27 points in 77 games as a rookie with the Flyers, playing very sheltered minutes. He looked solid, but by no means was he an offensive superstar.

But even if we give the edge to Couturier in every category you mentioned over all Leaf prospects, let me give you an analogy of how your logic is... John and Jack both write a multidisciplinary exam. The exam involves math, science, english, geography and history. The scores are as follows: Math: (John 88, Jack 86), Science (John 84, Jack 83), English (John 87, Jack 85), Geography (John 91, Jack 90), History: (John 82, Jack 80). Therefore John is at least three times smarter than Jack.
Is that fair to say?
