Devils claim Tom Kostopoulos

Devils claim right wing Tom Kostopoulos off waivers from Pittsburgh


TG:
"The Devils claimed right wing Tom Kostopoulos off waivers from the Pittsburgh Penguins today.

Kostopoulos, 34, has 60 goals, 96 assists and 705 penalty minutes in 615 career NHL games with Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, Montreal, Carolina and Calgary.

The Penguins just signed the 6-foot, 205-pound Mississauga Ontario native to a two-way NHL contract on Tuesday. Previously, he had been playing on a 25-game AHL tryout contract with their Wilkes Barre/Scranton. He had to be placed on waivers after he was signed to the NHL contract to remain in the AHL.

Kostopoulos had three goals, four assists and 43 penalty minutes in 17 AHL games with Wilkes Barre/Scranton. He last played in the NHL with Calgary last season, putting up four goals, eight assists and 57 penalty minutes in 81 games. "

Who is this guy? Is he a bottom line RF? NHL or AHL material?


Come on, Lou. We need a BIG trade !!!

How does the waiver lineup go? Aren't we second to last because we lost in the SCF last year? Is that how it works out? So Pittsburgh had a chance to claim him first?

Well they had just signed him and had to place him on waivers so they couldn't pick him off waivers unless I am totally missing something.

We gave up nothing, see if it turns into something if not well we trolled Pitt a little bit.

Pittsburgh signed him so every other team gets a shot first I think. It gets updated through the season so it's definitely not based on last year's results.

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.

Tom Kostopoulos is a 4th liner, who'll play his heart out, will drop the gloves with about anyone and will get his face punched in every time. He's a "team player" that will do just about anything the coaches tell him to do.

If he's here to replace Janssen, then we're already in a better situation then we were 24 hours ago.

After cooling off a bit, I don't mind the deal. He's better than Barch and Janssen and that's A-OK with me. Welcome aboard, Jim from The Office!

The way Carter and Bernier are playing compared to the rest of the team, it might work.....

A guy like this practically singlehandedly won us a game last year with a clutch goal that we were seemingly trying to lose, allowing us to go back to the Rock with a 3-2 lead.

So, I'd be a little reluctant to make that statement.

And to go further, we were in the same position when he was claimed with not being able to roll four lines.

I would have preferred to pick up Boychuk. Not that I wanted to pick him up. Just would have preferred.
