The funny thing is, fans just a couple years ago were begging for a third line shutdown centre and, now that he's here, all we do is complain about his lack of offensive production.

Couturier doesn't need to put up 50 points if he continues to fulfill the shutdown role. His lack of production won't be noticeable off of the gamesheet if the top 6 produce to their own offensive capabilities.
But he's an 8th overall draft pick. He's got to eventually be more than a 3rd line defensive center.
