Thats true you never said that but you did say its unlikely. and we are basing our projections on more then one NHL season, its based on his play this year in the AHL on a very very bad team with virtually no NHL talent other then Schenn and his numbers in juniors as well as the word of scouts. People are just arguing that its a safe bet that he becomes a 60pt guy. Again no one is saying Yak won't turn into what you think but the way we see it Couturier is just as likely to turn into what most of us are saying too which is a 60pt 2-way C. And "us" is not just Flyers fans, you make it sound as if lots of scouts haven't labeled Couts as a 1C or at least a 2C. you can find plenty of quotes on line from scouts or in a post on page 5 attesting to this.
can't have a double standard.
