Apparently the Sens scouting staff left one of Couturiers playoff games disgusted with his play. The Sens were not high on Couturier at all and it didn't shock any Sens fan that we didn't pick him.
And why would we want to take it back if it got us Turris who is one of our best players? Zibanejad has shown signs of being a great player, plus he's only 19. Lets give the kid some more time here.
P.S He scored a real clutch goal tonight to tie the game with about 5 to go in regulation.
