I'd rather not. He and G are what make the PP go. And it's not like PP minutes are strenuous minutes anyway.

I hope Lavy mixes things up a lot in the preseason to see who has chemistry, as he said. In the top 9 we have lots of guys who can play C and wingers who can play either side, so there are options to mix and match.
On paper a 3rd line of Gagne-Couturier-Read could be a fantastic two-way line. That is, if you ignore Gagne's inability to finish and the health questions.

It's not really certain that Gags is going to be on the team/in that top 9 yet, but that would be a checking line that could produce some offense too.

Couturier is going to create offense simply based on his percentages rebounding. Then, there's the other reasons. He isn't shooting 5.3% again

I think much of that was the low quality of his teammates. Other teams knew to focus on him because his comrades weren't as much of a threat, keeping him to the outside. He also often kept himself out from the net when he would let his linemates get deep before he would dump the puck to let them grind it out since that was what they were good for. If he had decent linemates I think it would have made a large difference.

Even if (Couturier was 5th among Flyers forwards in QoT), he's too good to shoot that bad, and he didn't really shoot that well in his rookie year either.
