Damn. I was really hoping to bring him back and figured the two sides could make it work.

Wise not to get in a bidding war for a 4th liner. I would like to have him back but the $/term needs to be right.

32 year old 4th liner that’s good at faceoffs and on the PK. I’d throw him the same $1.8m he got the last few years on a 2 year deal max. Someone will overpay, trust SY to not be that someone.

I fully expect someone to pay Glendening more. He’s the kind of player lots of teams look for.

Frankly, it is time to work some of the younger players into a penalty killing role. His faceoffs will be tough to replace in the near future.

He is just such a heart and soul for the team. To Toronto I assume?

I think he is over rated. Great at faceoffs decent at defense. Offensively he is not that good. He has hands of stone just like Helm and his offensive IQ is not NHL level.

Steve has guys who are great in the locker room already.

Toronto might want him but I’m not so sure they can afford him. Depending on how much they pay Mrazek they will probably have to fill out the rest of the roster with minimum salary players.

Philip Danault is he is not signed yet as a replacement? Excellent defensively, better points than Luke, good on face offs, but the price might not be right
