All 3 can put the puck in and all 3 are great defensively. When Laraque comes back i hope Kostopoulos stays out of the line-up, the 4th line mix should be Laraque (lock), Lappierre, Chipchura and Bégin
What you're saying here fits the description of most 3rd/4th liners you'll see playing in the NHL.

And considering is far from having Lang and S.K.'s talent he did good. No huge mistake, no costly penalty either. decent fill-in for Higgins injury.

He did exactly what was asked of him, battle for pucks along the board, stay in front or close to the net, give the puck to the other two so they generate the offense (or dump if no option)

it's not Kostopoulos that is dragging the 3rd line down, it's the other two that are way too good for 3rd liners

Begin ? I dunno what games you were watching this week-end, but NO WAY Kostopoulos needs to be canned so Begin can keep his spot... no way.
