HUUUUUGE difference.

In conclusion, I believe Couturier is WAY better than ANY Leafs prospect.
Couturier was drafted a man, Kadri was drafted a boy. This needs to be taken into account. Couturier was drafted for the player he was, Kadri was drafted for the player he could be. Kadri has showed continued progress, and although Couturier is a better player, this is irrelevant in evaluating Kadri's development.
