because defensively solid, 3rd line centers, regardless of their age, probably won't get you a sniff at a young top 3-4 dman - let alone top pairing
Actually, former Flyer Mike Richards made a huge improvement in his offensive skills in his third NHL season when was a 22 year old. He turned into a PPG player pretty much overnight.
I don't know if Couturier can do that next season or even in his fourth season when he will be 22, but it has happened before.
