Ultimate upside for Da Costa imo= 2nd line center in the mold of David Desharnais (last year when he was better)

I'd say he has less than a 50% chance of hitting that upside though. More likely he is a call up top 6 center.

I don't quite think he is worth a 2nd, but I'd say definitely a 3rd.

I would be willing to trade him and a 3rd for Michael Stone. two 3rd's is about equivalent of a middle of the pack 2nd. is that off too much?

I know you guys have 8 NHL defenseman, so he could be expendable. Da Costa also could bring offensive creativity which the Yotes lack up front imo. He is more likely to reach that potential when hes not blocked by Spezza, Turris, Zib, and Smith as well.
