From watching Couts for maybe five games in the Q he was pretty beastly on the dot at that level, and as a new centre in the NHL players usually improve between about 7-12% on the dot from their first season to their 4th or 5th. So hopefully the extra muscle he put on, and extra faceoff 'IQ' he has built up over the last two years mean he can do so in the NHL as well.
