Old Redline Quote

From Redline prior to the 2001 draft.

So which of them would we rather have five years down the road?

In Red Line's view, perhaps only Gleason among this group has the potential to develop into a No. 1 defencemen in the NHL. He possesses in abundance the type of skills, dynamic skating ability, powerful point shot, and attacking nature that a true No. 1 must have. He's also got a mean, nasty streak a mile wide, though he does get caught up in undisciplined retaliation that can cost his team. Factor in that he sometimes exhibits questionable decision making and hockey sense in his own zone, and Gleason is also probably the biggest gamble of the big four.

I can see the first part. He's looking less and less like a gamble and more of a sure thing though.

You definitely gotta give DT some love for getting him for Smoke.

I love you all.
