Report- Leafs Showing Interest In Luke Glendening

02/08/2019 at 12:55pm EST

from Frank Seravalli of TSN,

It’s believed the Maple Leafs have kicked the tires again on Red Wings centre Luke Glendening this year, a Babcock favourite from his time in Detroit.

Glendening, 29, is the biggest mover on the latest edition of the TSN Trade Bait board, climbing up to No. 25.

He played under Babcock for parts of two seasons in Detroit, the type of scrappy fourth-line centre who has seen his minutes rise at playoff time.

Last year, the asking price from the Red Wings was believed to be a second-round pick, a price that was too rich for then-GM Lou Lamoriello’s blood.

This year, that price would seem to be the starting point, given that older rental Brian Boyle – who has not scored in his last two playoff runs – fetched a second-round pick from Nashville earlier this week.
