The same was said of Spezza, even Giroux to a degree, when they were drafted and coming up.
I believe the combination of Briere getting undeserved top-6 minutes, and our lackluster defense, have had a negative impact on his offensive production.

No doubt that our management and trainers are aware of Couturier's shortcomings with footspeed and can implement that into his offseason training routine.
