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

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

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.

Not a bad pickup, if Kosty can take Gio off the penalty kill, i'm all for it. Also anything is hell of a lot better than Janssen.
