As a depth offensive defenseman I think it's not that far fetched to think Kostka could be called up (if he's here next year, or if there's a season) but probably unlikely.

He's been great in the AHL in the last couple years so perhaps he's a late bloomer.

I forget which management person it was (perhaps Poulin) who stated something about the Maple Leafs trying to snag Kostka the last couple of seasons. So they must have liked what they saw from him for a little while now.

I'd be interested to see how he handles the NHL speed. He certainly is deserving of a look. At worst he looks like a strong depth option as you stated.

I don't mind as long as he produces he might not be that top 4 defensemen for our team in the future but he can be a bottom pairing PP specialist.

Frattin may return for the game on the 16th or 17th. What do you think the lines will be when he returns? A good first line could be
Frattin/kadri - aucoin - kadri/Frattin

Frattin -Komarov - Ross
D'Amigo - McKegg - Deschamp
Ryan - Zigomanis - Hamilton

Holzer - Gardiner
Gysbers - Blacker

Just sorted by age and picked the possible futures. Go young like some other teams are doing. Threw some vets in for leadership.

Okay then. Understandable.

If everyone is healthy (my line-up).

Kadri - Colborne - Ashton (If Kadri and Ashton swap wings whatever)
Frattin -McKegg - Ross (Frattin has his work cut out for him ... McKegg's opportunity)
D'Amigo - Scott - Deschamp (D'Amigo and Scott PK they can ES together)
Ryan - Zigomanis - Hamilton (Not really 4th. line, could be some heavy lifting)

Holzer - Gardiner (Holzer is so solid - green light Gardiner)
Gysbers - Blacker (Gysbers or Fraser both 25/26 depth potential)
Fraser - Kostka (Ranger or Kostka doesn't matter)

Rynnas - playing better maybe
Scrivens - slow starter

I'm not that concerned about wins, more about playing time for the futures. Marlies recently played a game against a team and the average age of defenders was around 22.8 for the other team and about 25.5 for the Marlies. Sign placeholder vets for the Leafs and do the same thing for the Marlies, end up sending prospects to play out of the way places in scrub leagues because there are no minutes available for the futures.

Komarov wasn't home sick he just felt that AHL is not what he needs. Many teams have offered him twoway-contracts but this was the first year when he managed to get one way offer but the lockout turned it away.

It's also pretty odd to say that he was homesick and then the guy is returning to Russia when he is born and raised in Finland.
