Not in my mind, but you very well could be right about how management felt. I definitely had both of those guys ahead of DaCosta in the not to distant past, but then again Im not a scout so I can admit that was likely the armchair GM in me looking at stats and junior accomplishments. Its a different game from junior to pro.

I always take guys with an impressive college resume with a grain of salt, not really expecting anything beyond a depth player who can fill in when the going gets rough (a la Bobby Buttler). I can see DaCosta being the real deal, and sticking in NHL in a meaningful role.
