We could also use a prick (Gleason) on the ass end too but knowing MG he will probably think we can win with our PP.


I'm not really uptodate on Gleason, what sort of player is he ???


From wikipedia,

Timothy Gleason (born January 29, 1983) is an American professional ice hockey defenseman and an alternate captain of the Carolina Hurricanes of the National Hockey League.

After a standout junior career with the Windsor Spitfires, Gleason was drafted in the first round (twenty-third overall) of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft by the Ottawa Senators. Unable to come to terms on a contract with the Senators, Gleason was subsequently traded to the Los Angeles Kings for forward Bryan Smolinski on March 11, 2003. After spending three years in the Kings organization, Gleason (along with Éric Bélanger) was traded to the Hurricanes on September 29, 2006, for defensemen Oleg Tverdovsky and Jack Johnson.

Gleason is known for his toughness and gritty play, including the diving effort to prevent the puck from leaving the offensive zone in Game Seven of the 2009 Eastern Conference Semifinals against the New Jersey Devils, leading to a game-tying goal. He also took a puck to the face against Washington in 2009, but returned to the ice after multiple stitches to score the tying goal on a breakaway.

Gleason played for the United States in the 2010 Winter Olympics, winning a silver medal

In this article posted in Dec., Gleason was in the top 25 defenceman in the league at least stat wise. One would have to think that he would have a high price tag.

Of course, but it's only a matter of time before the annual parade to the infirmary takes place on the blueline, at which point Tanev will be the first to get the call. Looks RD's future ROY Connauton should get a call at some point as well, being selected to the AHL AllStar team and all.

If Salo and Rome are out for a little longer and the defence falters I could see a call up but not right now. I'm hearing Salo should be out the minimum for the head injury protocol by the way. But that's what they said when Willie went down.
