Also, 50 point potential is his floor, not his ceiling. It'll be interesting to see what happens to him behind Giroux and Schenn.

That said, you saw a lot of his offensive ability tonight; lots of big body work, low on the boards, puck-handling in tight spaces, making clean passes.

Couturier's offense is going to be just fine. People who can't see flashes haven't been watching. Where there's smoke there's fire, especially if there was burning down entire forests in juniors.

The arguments against Couts' offense remind of the ..."Oh, Giroux will never be anything more than a 50 point winger with 40 assists." "Oh, Giroux will never be anything more than a 65 point forward with 40 assists." "Oh Giroux will never be a consistent point-per-game player." "Oh, ****."
Calm down. I'm not saying the potential's not there. I'm just saying it isn't elite. There's a difference. No need to get so defensive.
