Now that the roster is finally taking shape, and the pieces are starting to fall into place, the main questions are about the line combinations and kids making the roster. Signings like Tanner Glass and Lee Stempniak add flexibility to a roster that was almost 100% reliant on kids making the roster, while all of […]

Earlier today Kevin wrote a piece in which he broke down what he called the “curious case” of Tanner Glass. Largely, I understand what he was trying to do. Just as in my “Retain or Release” articles, Kevin wanted to present the best arguments he could to, while highlighting some issues, bring hope for success in regards to Tanner Glass’ upcoming tenure with the Rangers...
I’ve got to be honest, when the Rangers signed Tanner Glass I didn’t know too much about the guy. I loved the idea of bringing in some sandpaper, especially after trading away Derek Dorsett along with Dan Carcillo’s future with the Blueshirts cloudy at best. However, three years at $1.45 million per seemed excessive for a guy Penguin fans seemed way too excited about landing...
Tanner Glass is arguably the worst hockey player available in free agency this summer; the Rangers just signed him to a three year $4.35M deal.

Glass was dreadful last season, only tallying two points wasn't as big as a physical presence as the Pens were hoping for. After all, Glass was making $1.5 million per-year and the expectations were for him to be a good third-or-fourth line player.Go ahead, read the rest »
A Tanner Glass postgame interview Saturday night on Root Sports was videbombed by … well, a dongshot. The Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Calgary Flames 2-1 on Saturday, and Glass had an assist in the game. He was interviewed after the contest, but the interviewer chose a poor location nearby what looked like the training room. […]
Shero brought in Tanner Glass last season, he was looking for a solid 4th line
contributor -- someone with some versatility and physical toughness at a
relative bargain. In his years with
Vancouver and Winnipeg, Glass scored a handful of goals but was mainly known
for his physical presence. That puts him
in a large pool of potential 4th line players like Craig...
