I wouldn't worry about that. Nashville has a tendency to send players to the minors. The exceptions to that rule were Hartnell and Legwand, but every other prospect that organization has at forward has spent time in the minors. Even the highly regarded Colin Wilson spent time with the Admirals.
I've never seen Da Costa play, so I'm not sure what his game is like. However, as others have pointed out, if he signs with anyone, he's going to have to spend time in the minors.
