The Leafs have had lifetime AHL-er Mike Kostka up for 6 games and he looks like a guy who'll stick in the NHL. I just hope they're not preparing to offer him a multi-year, 1-way deal after a week
$775K a year really isn't much to a team that's teetering close to the salary floor anyway. I'd rather pay him $775K a year and have him (at worst) be a scratch vs someone who carries a $4+ million cap hit and salary and have them being a scratch.
