Kostopoulos blocked shots, could play on the PK and is solid in his own zone. I never expect him to put up 20 goals, which is why Latendresse was drafted. To score. Kostopoulos was signed to play D and give energy.

Latendresse, at this point, is a very poor excuse for a roster player.

P.S. Kostopoulos is a great team player and will do anything for his teammates, even if it means getting thrown around by Chara. Lats doesn't even have half of his guts, but he's got WAY more size. He's a big softie.
I wouldn't go that far. Latendresse fought Chara. He's learning to use his body more effectively and has shown signs of improvement.

Latendresse is a third liner in the New NHL right now. Not a fourth liner. Kosto is a fourth liner. It's apples and oranges.
