Guys, I just physically face pamed while writing that ^
Its sad, really. These are our guys, on our team. We should all be hoping that Winnie recovers with no permanent damage done, and should have faith that DC (Da Costa) can shape up into a good top 6 palyer. At the very least, his presence and skill set forces Zibanejad to bet better in order to get a spot on the team
Less hate guys, come on! This is our team. You wanna hate on our guys, head over to the leafs and habs boards!
Da Costa sucks.

It's ok, you've been away. Let me clue you in. Right now we have an NHL center depth that looks like this, in no perticular order: Spezza, Z-Bad, Da Costa, Smith, Regin, Konopka, Winchester. Due to our team's current state of "rebuilding" we are pulling for youngsters to get valuable playing minutes on the team. Winchester's injury clears up the depth a little bit for a little while.

The Da Costa sucks thing generates from a poster here ranting about how bad Da Costa is in one of the rookie tournament's GDT. A couple of minutes later Da Costa went on to score a hat trick. The poster kept going through his hat trick. The phrase stuck.

The problem with that logic is that the young players you have mentioned will not be playing on the roster if all that is available is a 4th line or extra forward spot. Since Winchester is a 4th liner at best, his absence doesn't impact their chances at all.

Not sure why this isn't readily apparent. Da Costa and Zibanejad are competing with Regin, not Konopka or Winchester.

Da Costa will never be a good player...let alone a top 6er in the NHL, he's just too soft/lazy/inconsistent to be even taken seriously as a professional hockey player(he's basically useless).

People who think otherwise clearly don't understand the game of hockey as well as we do.

Am I the only one who thinks that Winnie is a horrible nickname?

Reminds me of this guy:



Anyway, I hope his career won't suffer as a result of this.

Totally agree! Was funny at first, but it seems too be getting a bit over the top.

Winnie was going to be put on waivers anyway.

I agree. We should call him CarknerVille instead.

My bad. I guess I just got confused by the part of your post where you stated specifically that Winchester's injury would lead to more chances for the younger players, as opposed to what you tried to twist it into after the fact ....
