@Sexyhairyman You should watch Couturier more often, then you'd understand a bit better. Trades are not even remotely the same.

@Dangle_My_Berries @DeclanK Had an S3, and that was a great phone. Not a fan of the software included, that's for sure.

@Dangle_My_Berries @DeclanK I've got a Samsung Tab2 - just a horrible piece of junk. Use it for reading but it's prone to crashing and can't handle too much.

OT and not everyone's jam, but the reviews this website does are so incredibly over the top, you have to tip your cap at them.

@Great Dane @vinoa @Mapleswede @TorontoMapleLeafs Small sample sizes, sure, but Nylander is one of 3 players in the league that are over a point a game right now. PPG in that league is not something happens often.

Couturier gets put into a pure shut down roll in Philly and he can't shake it. He was an offensive player that played for Guy Boucher and obviously had D pounded into his head—and it stuck. 

Made the NHL as an 18 year year old as a shut down C, is 6'3-'64 and has a lot of untapped offensive upside based on back-to-back 96pts seasons in the Q. 

That's the long answer. Short answer: Big, skates, good hands, defensive specialist, has untapped offense. Makes $1.7 or 1.9

@Cameron19 @DeclanK @Black_Hawk They have Schenn on wing that can slide over and play C and Laughton ready to go. Laughton could be as good or better than Couturier. Defensive specialist and puts up points. Has 4 goals in 3 games in the A right now.

@Cameron19 @DeclanK @Black_Hawk Couturier for Franson, NP. Have to think long and hard about Gards for Cooter.

@Black_Hawk @DeclanK I've said Gardiner for Couturier a few times, but always back off it. 

His play down the stretch last year was dominant. Versus Boston in the playoffs=dominant. 

He has a lot more to give right now and I'd hate to let him go, only for him to blow up in Philly or something. 

Unpopular, sure, but I'd trade Naz for him straight up. I know Gus thinks the same. 

We have 1 center that can defend properly right now and it seriously hurts the team. Lupul-Couturier-Winnik would be a really good line that would at least have 2 players that can defend.

Amazing how much more in tune Peter Horachek is with the NHL than Randy is. He's looking after D, D-zone and N-Zone, which are the most important parts of any team. 

He's going to impact the team a great deal this year. Should be head coach in the new year, I expect.

@LN-093 @ingy56 @DeclanK NHLers know not to look where they are going to shoot. Or look in one corner and shoot for the other.

@ingy56 @DeclanK Ya, brutal. I like how he referenced the graphs as not being his and then proceed to rip off the content and make no mention of that part. Like it makes it OK somehow.

Not sure this passes the eye test. They look no where near as bad as they did last year. 

Thinking that perhaps the bad Detroit and Pitts games are skewing the results.

@Bring the Cup Home That he's playing with shield is doing nothing but hurting him. He hasn't played with a shield, let alone a cage, since Jr. Heard that said by Ferraro on the broadcast (who is my fav), but disagree entirely. 

He's playing well for the first time as a Leaf because he is on a line that plays well on the boards and not off the rush like the rest of the team.
