Curtis Glencross Appears To Be On The Trade Market

from Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun,

The 32-year-old left-winger has a no-trade clause in his contract, but his name has been mentioned in the rumour mill and he confirmed after Thursday's practice at the Saddledome that he has been asked to provide a list of teams he would be willing to join.

Glencross declined to comment on how many squads were on that list, but you can bet they're all legitimate Stanley Cup contenders.

“I love what's going on here. I have a lot of good friends in this dressing room,” Glencross said.

“We play for the 20 guys in this room every night. We have a good group. If it comes to the situation where you do have to leave, you're gonna miss a lot of guys in here. But I have to kind of think about what's best for myself and the family, as well ...

“It's a tough situation.”

At the end of the day, it’s Glencross who makes the final call. He would have to OK a trade to his approved list of teams if that was the case.

Glencross said if the right opportunity came along — with the management’s blessing — he’d do it.

He also said there have been no conversations over a potential contract extension and he’s been asked to provide a list of team’s he is willing to be traded to.

“The whole idea four years ago was, I’ll play at home and I’ll take a hometown discount to stay here, we’ll bring in a few more players to make our team better,” he said. “It’s just unfortunate the situation I’m in.
