I agree. Brayden hasn't been very good, he's becoming more effective offensively, but still is prone to defensive lapses, turnovers, chasing the puck, etc.

Read and Voracek have been surprisingly good. Jake is finally playing with some swagger in the offensive zone, which was really the only thing holding him back before.

Couturier has been putrid though. Very weak on the puck, nearly invisible offensively, less physical than last year. He shows flashes. His spinning pass to McGinn in the slot yesterday was very impressive, but physically he just can't make a difference, he's too weak, and he's not a strong skater. Still think he'll end up being a very good player, but it won't be this year.

It's like a 50/50 mix of veterans and young guys contributing and not contributing on this team. And it makes me think they're tuning Lavi out if he can't get more to buy in.
