When you have a good team, your younger players almost always play on lower lines.

In Toews' rookie year, his team wasn't good
If you're a premier offensive player, you dont get used in a way that deters you from scoring. The game is still the same. Whoever scores more goals wins. If Couturier possessed the same skill set as Toews he wouldnt be playing on the fourth line last year. It's that simple. He may evolve into that type of guy. He's just not there today.
