Since then, we've acquired Turris, which will make it difficult for Da Costa to crack the lineup. Zack Smith is beginning to really shine as our third-line centre, as well. I can't see Da Costa being called up this year, but I expect him to push for a spot in next season's training camp.
It seems some Sens fans have already given up on him seeing as Spezza, Turris, Zibanejad, Smith, Regin and Konopka make for a lot of depth at centre. I thought Da Costa looked great in his time with the big club, though, and certainly has bigtime skill. We'll just have to see what happens.
