We want to talk potential?
We can't compare guys in different leagues point wise. We can however look at players in the same league
We'll take Stamkos and Yakupov. They both played in the same league, same team.
They both had a PPG of about 1.6, with Yakupov being a fraction higher
Couturier will be matched up with the first guy I found, Daniel Briere, who also played on the same team
Couturier had a 1.2PPG. Briere? 2.1
I'll even be generous and leave out his terrible first year, which still only puts him at 1.5
He's nowhere near Briere who with his career average (he had some amazing years) is a 60/70 poiny guy
Yakupov is right at the same place as 60 goal scorer Steven Stamkos
THAT is why Yakupov easily has 50 goal potential, and I highly doubt that Couturier will be a Toews light
