You know what I think? I think people immediately assume Flyers' fans believe Couturier is a superstar when they compare him to his draft class, but in reality everyone is overrating his draft class, as isn't exactly unexpected around here, by thinking he's got a bunch of kids that are guaranteed to pace for 85-90 points per season to compete against.

Couturier's offensive potential is in the 60-70 range. His offensive floor, at bust level really, is in the 45-50 range. Most of these kids' offensive potential from his draft class are right there too.

Couturier will do all of that with all-world defensive play.

You don't see how being as offensively talented as someone while being significantly stronger defensively makes him a better potential player?

Is defense not important to hockey anymore?

I know one thing. Malkin would love to see him move out west Malkin lost his cool again last night because of Couts. Love it.
