The 11th overall could yield one of Nurse ( unlikely) Ristolainen or Zadorov.... All three that are/ were more highly touted than Shattenkirk. Flyers get immediately better but lose big time in the value department.
How is Couturier's ceiling higher?

Not only are they different positions, but Shattenkirk has put up points since his rookie year, Couturier has not.

Until couturier starts to score I'm staying away from him. If you ignore his draft spot, which people should consider, than he becomes far less worthy of Shattenkirk. Many top-10 players in the become busts. Just look at recent history of drafts. I'm by no means saying he will be a bust, but you must ignore his draft spot and judge him on his skill. Sure, he has great skill, but he hasn't produced yet and that worries me.
