Sorry... Not intended to be offensive in the slightest, but that's incorrect.
Couturier played the third hardest minutes of any Philadelphia Flyers' forward, spent more time short-handed than any other forward not named Maxime Talbot, had the worst quality of teammates outside of Ben Holmstrom, who only played five games with the team, and he started in the defensive zone more than any other forward on the Flyers' team, period. He was a horse his rookie season.
