I've always thought Da Costa would be a late bloomer due to the lack of development relative to most professional hockey players. He was playing in a bad french league until he was 18 (when most people are drafted by the NHL). I think his development accelerated tremendously once coming over to NA, but even then he still had so much untapped potential. The more he plays in the NHL the better he is going to get and I don't see any reason why he can't be an amazing 2nd line centre.

Michalek - Spezza - Turris
Zibanejad - Da Costa - Alfredsson/Silfverberg

When healthy that could be nice! Especially since Da Costa and Silf have already shown a lot of chemistry.
Yup, we've only really agreed on Da Costa and the awesomeness of Spezza
