60 posts in this topic

Per TG "Devils claim Tom Kotsopoulos from Pittsburgh off waivers."

Thoughts? (also tg mispelled his name)

Well it's a good move because he is better than Barch, Janssen, and Sestito. Hoping he might get in there for Gionta some nights too, but not expecting that.

I've always been a fan.  4th liner, can put in a few goals, a right handed shot - fits in a lot better on the lower lines than did Bobby Butler, and is definitely better than Cam Janssen.  I don't want to look at his territorial numbers, I fear they're not good.

 

EDIT:  oh and he kills penalties too.  I know it's too much to ask to get Gionta off that responsibility (and who says Kostopoulos is any better), but here's hoping.

Ooofa....

If you thought Barch was a punching bag.........

The New Jersey Devils might possibly employ the two worst fighters in the National League of Hockey

Kostopoulos is just a right-handed Mathieu Darche.  Now the Devils can fill out 5 lines at least reasonably, if everyone's healthy:

 

LW:  Zubrus, Elias, Ponikarovsky, Carter, Matteau

 

C:  Zajac, Henrique, Loktionov, Gionta, Josefson

 

RW:  Kovalchuk, Clarkson, Bernier, Kostopoulos, Barch

I don't know why, but it always pisses me off when I see guys wearing their goalie pads on wrong legs.

Yet another reason to hate Bob Saget

While I agree with the fact that its a good move and that I prefer him to Barch and Jassen, I also have to say that here it is. This is the THE move Lou will do/have done this year to help us and we are probably idiots if we are still hoping for another move. He won't try to find a top 6 Forward. Tom Kostopoulos is clearly enough to help this team get back to winning and probably carry it in the playoffs...if we get there.

Better than Janssen.  Probably equal to Barch (who has skated and played better than I thought he would coming into this season).  He's on a 2 way contract, so not much of a downside with this pickup, although he is the answer to none of our problems.  Plus, at 34, he probably brings the median age of this roster down a bit.
