Tanner Glass On The Bubble As The Season Approaches For The New York Rangers

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

Tanner Glass stood up for his Rangers teammates on Thursday the way he always does, stepping in when the Bruins’ Zac Rinaldo got a little goofy in the third period against Brian Gibbons, Brady Skjei and Tommy Hughes.

But that doesn’t change the math that the veteran winger must overcome in order to start the season on the Rangers roster.

“Obviously he played on our team last year, but there are 15 or 16 [forwards] I’ve really liked so far and we’re only going to keep 13,” coach Alain Vigneault said before the Blueshirts’ 4-3 shootout loss. “We all know the skill set he brings, but do skill and speed trump that moving forward?

“We’ve got four [now three] games to play to answer that.”

Glass, who will turn 33 at the end of November, plays a hard-edged, physical game and is extremely popular in the room. In a league in which the role of an enforcer has steadily diminished, Glass is the lone Ranger capable of filling that job description, last year accumulating nine of the club’s 20 fighting majors.

The Middleweights Are Taking Over

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

Snapshot of a changing NHL: The Rangers and Devils are lined up for the Sept. 22 preseason opener at the Garden, New Jersey’s pugilistically inclined Jordin Tootoo on right wing, New York’s similarly inclined Tanner Glass adjacent to him on left wing.

In the old days, the gloves would have dropped right off the opening draw and the night would have featured a long card of bouts. These days, the two men jostled briefly, then skated away to join their teammates in hockey.

“I was actually a little surprised,” Glass told The Post before the Blueshirts’ 6-3 victory over the Flyers at the Garden on Monday. “I wasn’t sure why I was starting, but then when I saw [the Devils’] opening lineup, I got it, and I definitely thought there’d be something, especially with him on a tryout looking for a job.

“But he didn’t really even say anything, and so we just played,” said the six-year NHL veteran who joined the Rangers over the summer as a free agent who played with the Penguins last season. “Definitely the thinking in this league has changed.

“You don’t see nearly as many heavyweights out there whose main job is to fight. Now you’ve got middleweights who fight, but who also can skate, kill penalties, and play a regular shift. That’s how it should be.”

Kyle and the Kids

With the regular season home opener a month away, the Winnipeg Jets continue to tweak their roster, albeit with modest changes. Yesterday the club announced they’ve signed former Leafs/Canucks/Sharks (and Blues, although he never played a game for them) centre Kyle Wellwood to a one-year, $700,000 contract. Seems like a relatively safe pick-up for the Jets – Wellwood can surprise with bursts of speed and some pretty slick stickwork.
