Gleason and Grossman don't solve our long-term problems. We have a long-term problem at defense to begin with and then you trade away one of the two or three only long-term solutions we do actually have in our possession at the moment by moving Coburn.
It's a terrible idea.
Grossman and Gleason are both UFAs. Opens up the door to go after Weber or Suter in the offseason.
I would not do Ryan + Gleason + Grossman for Schenn and Coburn.
Schenn is stellar and Coburn is far too vital to our future. That's why he got extended.
It's pretty bad dude.
It's not that bad. Timonen and Mez is a good top pairing. Carle-Gleason is probably an average second pairing. Grossman-MAB/Gus is better than Parent-Karjicek from 2010.
