What has Couturier shown that makes you think he could be fitted as a #1 Centre? #2 centre is being generous at this stage. I'm well aware of his defensive zone starts, poor linemates, etc, but the fact of the matter is he has scored a whopping 4 goals in his last 55 games played. Poor linemates and defensive zone starts aside, those numbers does resemble a potential #1 centre even in the slightest.

Hey, he could prove me wrong (and I'd happily eat crow), but lets take a step back for a second and face reality. His speed alone will prevent him (I think) from ever being a #1 centre.
