Time to use Kostopolus more.

I know were rolling right along, but In large part because of our first line, defense and goaltending. Our 3rd and 4th lines still have some question marks, I've noticed Smolinski, Lats and Dandenault have all had their share of problems, with the playoffs coming it would be nice to have some grit, Kostopolus is fearless, will fight, check and I feel is just as responsible with the puck as the mentioned above.
Lets face it the games are gonna be a lot more physical in the playoffs and I'd rather have Kostopolus play some games and get comfortable out there, so hes ready come postseason.
What do you guys think?

I think when used, we have one of the best third lines in hockey.

Streit - Grabs - Ryder

is very good. Streit has a **** load of defensive awareness, as does Ryder this year. Grabs may be weak defensively but he makes up for it offensively.

I wouldn't mind having him in the line-up.. actualy I like him! I remember some games ago, when begin and tom were on the same line as Smokes, those 2 human rocket balls were going after everybody, but yet again, a couple games later they sucked big time (I guess it was against the sens that they were really bad). Anyway, I think that Tom > Dandy. At least he'll try to protect his partners

Good, but he should be out there more often...why now only? (memory lane, nostalgia time? 'cause he was a King last year...).

Kosto could/would have protected Kovy vs Jovo/Phoenix, and/or...Kosto should have been out there in the last minutes, not Kovalev...

I hope we see Kosto more often...we need more grit/toughness for playoffs, and guys who will stick up for his teammates (Kosto...when is Begin back?...).

I really would like him to play more. I have no idea why he gets benched over Smolinski.

I think Kotso should be part of the 4th line along with Begin and Lapierre, that makes a nice crash banging energy line that you send out 4-5 times per period to generate momentum.

Build your 3rd line with Ryder Lats S.Kost Smolinski Grabvsky or Dandenault.

I think he should play today since he used to be a King. Carbo will know as a former player what it means to him and play him.

Dandenault has the hardest shot in the league.

Golobulus tried hockey but kept getting penalties. He lacked discipline.
