Well, he did claim prior to the draft that he prides himself on being a 200-foot player.

Defensive stats rely in part on the goalie; goalie stats rely in part on the defense. And so on, etc.

As for Couturier, once he was drafted I did my research. I determined he was "competent" defensively...which ended up being an understatement. If Philly has to choose between Schenn and Couturier, I hope they keep him. Bobby Clarke II? I sure freaking hope so.
NO! Don't compare him to Clarke. We know what happens when that starts being put out there.
