I read just fine thank you. I know exactly what he said. There is no such thing as a Steve Yzerman "type" -- that's the point. He is one of the best players of all time, and the reason he was so good is because there is/was no one else like him.

Stop trying to compare Couts to all time greats. It just isn't good for anyone. That is all I am trying to say.
So then you just decided to not read the rest of my post?

No one expects him to do any of those things, they were just stating players that weren't burners who were good offensively (Ron Francis) and a player he could have a similar play style to (Stevie Y).
This was the post which brought up Yzerman:

He offers a lot of intangibles and is just a shutdown guy that is learning his offensive game.
Which was replied with

By which he meant style of play, not level of play.

Again, no one expects Couts to be as good as SY or RF or any of those players, just that Francis was a player who was not the best skater but still put up big time points, and Yzerman who was a shutdown guy who was able to put up big points. Couturier looks like he could be of the same mould, obviously not as good.
