from Mike Stephens of Editor In Leaf,
When put up against all of Dubas’ preferred player attributes, Glendening fits none of them.
Quite literally, he checks none of the GM’s preferred boxes
In regards to cost-efficiency, few would ever categorize Glendening as “undervalued”. His $1.8 million price tag may not seem like a monumental sum when in the context of a constantly rising cap, but it’s still a heck of a lot to shell out for a career fourth-liner whose career high in points is 21 and whose most notable personal accolade came when he finished 40th in Selke voting back in 2016....
Let’s pretend that Glendening, hypothetically, makes the league minimum and ticks the “cheap” box on Kyle Dubas’ Ideal Player Model Checklist™.
Would he be a worthwhile add?
The short answer? No.
The long answer? Absolutely friggin’ not.
Remember how much emphasis Dubas puts into analytics? Well, Glendening’s have been downright putrid this season. As in, some of the worst in the league.
