I see Franson as our worst d-man that's playing, he's reasonable offensively but in the defensive zone he seems to make Komo like decisions with the puck. Kostka is more of an angle type of d-man and tries to tie the opposition up rather than go for the big hit or crosscheck. Kostka is very a good positional type of d-man but he's not exceptional in any way, that also means he's not exceptionally bad like Komo.
I think Kostka is a good fill type of d-man but not a backbone type and it's an indication of the quality of Leaf defenders that he's seeing so much ice time.
