Definitely doesn't take away from what Couturier has done, but this is like asking "would you trade him for Crosby?"
I think a lot of people have forgotten that when we went to the Finals we also came within a shootout goal of missing the playoffs altogether. Apart from the fact that that was a completely different team, with a younger Timonen, Carle, Meszaros before the injuries, Carter, Richards...

Just not comparable situations imo.
