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.
The Sens liked Couturier enough after his playoffs to invite him to fly to Ottawa to meet with the team etc. They only did this with like 5 guys, and they didn't invite guys like Scheifele and Hamilton. So, saying they were not high on him at all, is not entirely accurate.
And it did surprise some Sens fans (and league scouts) when the Sens passed on Couturier. That said, the verdict is still obviously out on how all of these guys will pan out in the long-term.
