Also, we so easily throw couturier in with datsyuk, staal and Bergeron as the defensive center so important to a cup winning team, yet neglect to acknowledge that Laughton projects to be a darn good 2-way center...
Laughton is unproven. Couturier isn't.

Edit: And I'd rather keep the better of the two anyways.
