The Flyers do not have any other centers/forwards capable of playing shutdown/3rd line center at Couturier's level, so why would they move him up and open up a gap at 3C? Scoring is valuable and at the moment, it's a major problem, but Couturier's offense is a lower priority compared to Giroux's/Jake's/Vinny's/BSchenn's/Hartnell's/Read's/Simmer's.
How's that been working out for them?
