Scoring in the playoffs is at a premium, for both sides. You score just as often from offensive talent as mistakes made on the ice. Couturier provides us with that 2 way shutdown center that we need. Yeah he plays that shutdown role and his offense takes a hit from it, but we will win more with a guy like that then a player who can only contribute on one side of the ice.
Keep Couturier for the love of god.
Yes. Trade him (and more) for a #1 D, and congrats..you have that #1 dman that Cup winning teams tend to have. However, now you lack that really excellent defensive center Cup winning teams tend to have. Guys like Staal, Datsyuk, Bergeron, Couturier, etc...they don't grow on trees either and they're just about as important.
Saturday night, I like to raise a little harm. I'll sleep when I'm dead.
