He's a tough one.

His concussion set him back 2 yrs ago.

Before that, it may have been their system or coaching, not sure. He brings the grit and desire needed, but seems to lack the defensive awareness, to completely excel at the role. But he seemed to improve as the year went on, in many ways, so that's why I'm hopeful he might be able to handle the role.

Glass had no gap awareness, the idea of disrupting passing lanes seemed foreign to him, and was unable to ice the puck in key times during a pk, I have more confidence Slater, Burmi, Little, Ladd and others can do that - at forward.
