What? That's ridiculous. A prospect, or very young player in the NHL, is going to be valued on what they will become... That's the whole GD point of developing talent.

This Couts nonsense reminds me of when Flyers fans got a good look at Giroux and said he was going to be something special. Other teams fans game out with their nerdy stat books and shot down Girouxs potential... Not saying Couts will be as valuable as G, but it's very easy to tell who has watched him play and who hasn't. The first give away that someone hasn't really watched Couts play is that they bring up points.
