It might be you, because I love what the kid brings. He's smart, skilled and competitive. He hits like a truck. He can skate. He's good at using his wingers, and plays good D. What I like about him is that he can make plays off the rush and play the cycle game too.
He's only going to get better as he fills out and gets his 'man' strength, like Luke has now. Whether it's at C or LW, he's going to be top 6 player for the rest of his career. Some guys just have 'it' and he does.
Couturier is more of the same, but a bit bigger, has a bit more finesse and less snarl...
I'm for keeping both of them.
Laughton is also going to be very good. Very fast player who can do it all. Reminds me of Adam Henrique. You don't see a lot of flash, but he always has the puck and makes and impact on the game.
You could put all three of these guys on one line and have heckuva team.
