Wait, I thought he was the next Ron Francis? -- funny how those two names have come up considering they are completely different players....good analysis though

Just let the kid effing develop and stop setting him up to fail by comparing him to some of the greatest to ever play the game.

And its funny to read that Schenn is too slow and under performing. I am not arguing the point, but it's pretty ironic considering the thread we are in.
To say that Couturier is the next Yzerman isn't fair. Couts is 21 and already better than Yzerman so he should be more compared to a Gretzky but with better defense.
