4th line role player. Can't say I've seen a ton of Kostopoulos in recent years, but he generally had a decent reputation. Probably can pencil him into the 4th line RW spot while Bernier moves up into the top 9. If it doesn't work out, he can follow Butler out the door. Obviously not a sexy pickup, but an upgrade over Janssen.

During a normal season, the waiver priority gets reset on November 1st (off the top of my head). Not 100% sure about the shortened season, but I think it's safe to assume that the current standings determine waiver priority (percentage points as opposed to just points).

Another misconception is that a team gets bumped to the bottom of waiver priority after claiming somebody (a la a Yahoo fantasy league). This is not true with the NHL.
