Plekanec is a FAR better forward for the now and near future. Whether or not Couturier even manages to break 30 points is still up in the air.
He scored 27 as a teenage rookie playing on the 4th line with goons and getting zero PP time. It's not a metaphysical certainty that my car is going to be in the garage when I leave here, but I wouldn't call it "up in the air" either. Simply by upgrading lines/ice time, his points are likely to take a significant jump.
