Every other player around him in that draft is miles ahead of him in development. (Kadri is in the same situation)

They have completely mishandled this player in all aspects.
We obviously don't agree on this point, and on Glennie as a player (I don't disagree with your views on him, but I don't think writing him off completely is fair). Anyway, interesting discussion and it is quite obvious that he is a point of contention within the organization.

Thankfully Dallas has done a great job drafting and signing undrafted players in recent years. They don't have any future stars outside of Campbell (upside, at least), but they have a number of really good prospects in Chiasson, Dillon, Oleksiak, Nemeth, Fraser, etc.
