IMO its not about letting couturier grow. it's about the fact that we have a logjam at his position and a deficiency on the back end.

letting players grow doesn't change the fact that we need young defenseman to grow with this team as well to be successful in the future, just look at the cup winners in the past, what, 8 years? they all have defenseman that were drafted or developed by the team that were major contributors to their cups.

IMO not every one of Schenn, Couturier and Laughton will reach their potential without adequate playing time and responsibility. they're not going to get that here all competing with one another for ice time.

someone needs to go in my opinion.
