Personally wouldn't have him in the lineup ahead of Liles or Gardiner. He's not terrible, and can be quietly efficient. But when he gets into that head on a swivel thing, it always ends with a quality scoring chance against.
Not sure what you're talking about here but Kostka's head on a swivel I thought was one of his greatest qualities. All of TO's d-men last year puck watched and Kostka realizing that the puck is being properly defended will actually survey the ice for weaknesses in the defense and attempt to plug it.
Schenn never did, if Schenn didn't see someone between himself and the puck he would just assume all is well, this is supposing there ever was anything going on in his head. I often thought that TO's defense last year should be charged for admission because they like fans seemed to be at the game to puck watch.
