But he could end up a 35-45 point player as well.

Couturier right now can be anything from a good 3rd line center to a good potentially great 2nd line center IMO.
What do you expect his point total to be playing as an 18 year old, on the 4th line of a playoff team, no PP time, against teams best lines???

He has the UPSIDE to be a #1 C. But with Giroux there, he could be a #1B C.

In Jr, we won a scoring title, had the best PPG for draft eligible players, won MVP, named top prospect and had the leagues best +/- Why is he only ever thought of as a defensive player that gets 45 points???????? Just becuase he CAN play defense, doesn't mean he CAN'T play offense!!
