And that's ultimately my main point. I'm not detracting from Baertschi at all. He's got extremely high offensive potential, and basically what I am saying is that Couturier's potential is right there with him considering that the two have been relatively equal each step of the way so far.
You can infer from them that both are offensively talented but I was saying that comparing them is a poor choice. I think Couts is underused in Philly and may never be able to reach his real potential if he gets stuck as 3rd line center for a long period of time (Looks like it could be a while with Giroux and Vinny both a head of him).
