Couture now unless he gets better or gets drastically overpaid. Has just signed his ceiling in my opinion.
That depends on the context that you're speaking of. Nobody will come close to Thornton in terms of passing, board play, and vision. But everything else that impacts the game, Couture is close, equal, or better than Thornton and Marleau. Things like scoring goals, being in the right position in all three zones, selling out to block shots, draws, leadership, and the ability to move from center to wing.
Couture is exactly where a man of his production, age, and what the contract is purchasing is supposed to be. It's Thornton and Marleau that need to come down on their next contracts at or below Couture's.
