Third, the fact that you call Couturier a bluechip stud C clearly shows how badly you overrate him. Because news flash, he's hardly a stud nor blue-chip after the performance he has put in this season. You can make an argument that he has regressed.
Couturier has to be the most overrated player in the league. Yakupov a close second. Its disgraceful.
Couturier reminds me of Latendresse. Both have size and horrible skating. Latendresse has/had more offensive potential. Couturier is better defensively. Both are French Canadian. Both are (in Latendresse's case was) terribly overrated by their respective fanbases.
If Beaulieu was a Flyer, you would probably call him a stud gold-chip prospect! (or maybe platinum)
This is one of the funniest posts I've ever read in these forums. Thank you.
