It happens.
Going from 27 points in 42 games to 47 points in 82 games isn't exactly a "sophomore slump" It's slightly off his rookie year pace, but he didn't play a full rookie year, and 47 points in 82 games is still pretty impressive for a 21 year old.

I dunno how you classify Couturier as a sophomore slump either... he had 27 points rookie year, he's pacing for 25 now? It's not the stats that are missing, it's the complete lack of quality in his offensive game that's the problem for me. He's not an elite level offensive player @ the NHL level. I'll stand by that. He's a 50 point #2C w/ elite D. Might touch 60 or more in a career year or two.
