Couturier has a skillset this team desperately needs. Trading him just opens up a gaping new hole.
And Cooter is TOUGH.
--His rookie year he only missed 5 games (after getting absolutely drilled in the ear with a Kimo slapshot)
--This year he only missed 2 games
--In the Q he played with mono, and was dominant.
Considering his linemates, shutting down malkin (and constantly facing the best players), this accelerated schedule vs. his dominance in a stacked AHL
when you add it all up, Cooter is very undervalued right now.
He is dependable, strong, big, and will only become more offensively threatening.
PPG in the AHL at 20 is no joke...Especially on ADK!
