There are plenty of guys who don't become burners, but noticeably improve their explosiveness. Umberger comes to mind that last season he spent here, all of a sudden he was drawing a ton of stick infractions just because of one summer where his first few strides improved greatly. Tavares is another example of a guy who's skating was said to be a flaw, and he's worked at it to the point where it's hardly impeding him.

Whether Couturier makes those improvements or not is uncertain, but it's not unheard of.
