We have no reason to think that it's all going to break loose next season when we need it.
Murray used up his mulligan last season. I doubt he'll stake his job on a gamble like that, especially when it further weakens us at left wing in the process.
What I'm saying is Bonino is clearly better than a 4th line player, where as Couturier does not strike me as more than a third line center, maybe a second line one in his peak if his offense improves.
