Da Costa has always been my favorite prospect. I remember I made a post about him a year ago comparing his amazing offensive stats and progression to the likes of JVR, Oshie and Toews. He had better PPG than 2 of those guys. I don't know if anyone still remembers, but I'll find it.
Anyway, last year, he started off very strong but you can tell the supporting cast underwhelmed his performance towards the end and he tried doing too much, along with Petersson and Hoffman.
He has unbelievable vision, passing, shot(very underrated), strength and puck-handling. He just needs to polish his game a bit more and he could be an outstanding player for us. His reach and excellent defensive composure make him very interesting moving forward.
I think the abundance of skilled forwards going to Bingo next year will show DaCosta's real upside. One thing that's left me to be desired is his conditioning which is huge in the new NHL's system. Can he handle the rugged 82 game-system and aggression in the playoffs?
