These Scheifele/Couturier debates are getting ridiculous.

Scheifele is 19; his career is just beginning. The only way that one can claim right now that Couturier will definitively prove the better pick/player is if one assumes that careers are judged by their performances at 18/19 years of age. Here is a news flash; they aren't. Scheifele will be judged as a player based upon his body of work in the NHL. How about we let that play out for a few years prior to judging him? Just because Couturier may have been the more NHL ready player at 18 in no way means that he will prove the better player over time. That is yet to be determined... despite any claims made here on this board to the contrary.
