Jason Allison was much slower than Couturier and was one of the better playmakers to play in the last 20 years.

Couturier is still developing his offensive style in the NHL. He's not going to put up points like he did in the QMJHL, but he's going to be a beast along the boards and turn into a guy who can play a key role in cycling the puck down low for a minute at a time, which will produce offense and exhaust opposing players. The guy will eventually start scoring on the chances he's getting and he's getting a ton of good ones. There's really no reason to be worried about him.
