The AHL'ers and reclamation projects have struggled.

We're not going to replace the gap left in the lineup by Spezza. Face it, without Anderson keeping us in most games, or Karlsson doing his thing, we're a bottom of the barrell lineup.

Maybe Da Costa allows the 'stache to put the lines back together as much as possible, and hopefully that will get the majority of the guys back in sync.

Injuries happen. That's life.
My only concern is that MacLean won't put Da Costa on the top line and instead try to jumble everything. He has consistently shown that he doesn't give rookies big minutes, so I'm not sure if he'd be willing to do it this time. I hope he does.
