Offensively he isn't there. Defensively? He's pretty close and only going to get better with experience.
Edit: As far as overrating? Right. I tend to underrate our prospects until they show something in the NHL, even then I'm reluctant. The last guy I "overrated" and considered un-tradeable was Giroux. I'm slow to get excited. What Couturier has shown is pretty damned exciting.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
