Zibanejad IMO has pushed Da Costa down on the depth chart & replaced him in Ottawa.

No seriously, bow down before me.
First, Regin is a Dane not a Swede lol & a lot of people on here have been high on the Swedes. In fact, I wrote extensively about Silfverberg in his first development camp before he had his breakout season in Sweden. I was also one of the people who wanted Ottawa to draft Couturier but I'm okay with Zibanejad & in fact, wanted him over Da Costa to be called up & IMO has passed him. Both Silfverberg & Zibanejad are going to be players for this team as is Lehner next season. Along with Karlsson I'm hoping for a very bright future for this team. But these Swedes also need to be protected for them to play without fear of being beat up & play to their potential.
