A typo, he meant PK. The Flyers were 17th in PK, while Couturier played on the second unit. Pleks played 1st unit in MTL, and even though they were a much worse team, they were 2nd in PK.
I can definitely see why that might make someone believe Pleks is being underrated. Not saying I would take Pleks over Couturier ; if I could have either for 10 years, I take Couturier . But if you are trying to win this/next year, there is no doubt Pleks is the better option. Both offensively and defensively.
People put waaay too much into that whole shut-down-Malkin thing. Usually people get laughed at about tiny sample size, but that does not seem to be happening here for some reason.
