Yes but skating is usually one area that doesn't improve drastically. Look at Hull, Robitaille, etc. Awful skaters but elite hockey sense and scoring hands. Bad skaters rarely if EVER become good ones. If you can't skate you need to be blessed with elite skills and Couturier has neither. Could he be a decent, 20 goal, 25 assist 3rd line center who is decent in his own end? Yes. Welcome to Michal Handzus.... and a waste of the 8th overall pick.
