That photo wasn't necessarily to single out Kostka, but our defence as a whole.

I have nothing against Kostka, but there is a reason he:
1) Went undrafted
2) Played for 6 AHL teams in 6 years
3) Didn't play an NHL game till the age of 27

The reason for all of the above is not that he was learning and prepping to be a #2 NHL defenceman.

Like I said, if Kostka is your #5/6 you are alright with that. Playing 25.5 minutes a night (the 5th most ice time logged by anyone in the NHL this season) is not where he should be...
