Couturier had 27 points in 77 games. Obviously he played a big role as a checking centre but realistically isnt a #1 C. On the Flyers he is likely a #3. He could be a #2.

Unless Couturier has forgotten how to play defense/check this year he has no where near the struggles of RNH.
Agreed I just used him because he was the only one I could think of that played right out of the draft like Couturier last year. RNH obviously has a higher offensive ceiling.

Couturier just needs time to bulk up, just doesnt look strong enough in the offensive zone, He gets pushed around to easily when on offense.
