    Giroux - Couturier - Simmonds
    Pickem - Schenn - Voracek

    Certainly seems a lot better than the current situation.
    No question about it. It's still a mystery to me why he was traded. But there's no explanation forthcoming.

    It makes absolutely no sense after moving Giroux to wing to piece together one line anyway.

    The last 9 NHL Seasons. But it's Couturier making Giroux and everyone else better and not Giroux making Couturier and everyone else better.

    Can make it up at this point folks.

    What's that? That Giroux has been one of the best players of his era?

    Giroux himself has credited Couturier for his success. He said Couturier is “such a good two-way player, the line doesn’t spend much time in the defensive zone,” which lets him be more offensive.

    I know part of that is being a captain, but it’s also true. But you want to minimize Couturier ‘s impact because you’ve hated him for years, & maximize Giroux’s, because you’re such a fanboi.

    Fact is, they both are responsible for each other’s & the line’s success, & it isn’t one player way more than the other.

    You just aren't able to give Couturier any credit at all for anything.
    I'm not even knocking Giroux.
    But do you think that playing with Couturier rather then Voracek makes the line a better line?
