Glendening as 4th line center? Call him up after LTIR can be made.

Glendening has a bigger cap hit than Emmerton and doesn’t solve the too many forwards, not enough roster spots dilemma.

I would think either 1) Z and Pav would be split up and push Andersson down to the 4th line and Weiss to the 3rd line. Or 2) Abby gets 4th line center duty and Cleary takes his spot on the top line.

I thought Glendening had a higher cap hit, not that I disapprove giving G his shot: all the guy has ever done is achieve.

This, most likely.

Thats likely why Emmerton hasn’t played well. He was probably informed by Holland weeks ago that this was their intention.  Shame. I liked the kid.

I liked the kid too and thought he started out last season being a physical presence with Tootoo on his line but that seemed to taper off as the season went on.  Plus we do have a lot of guys in the pipeline that can play as well if not better than he does now and with more future potential.

As Khan!! notes, with Emmerton waived and Helm on LTIR there’s one more move to make:

Monster - LTIR?
Eaves - LTIR? or
Nyquist - GR

Since Nyquist only has 2 or 3 games left before he has to clear waivers before being demoted it’ll be him. Tootoo will be the 13th forward.
