EDIT: Just looked. Malkin was credited with 4 takeaways in this game, and I'm pretty sure all of them came in the third . . . with Glass out there with him. He's not a solution, but he's better than any alternative, I think.
I agree here, even though Glass should on paper be no where near a top 6... He did seem to create space for them or be able to hold the puck in... If Tangradi isn't going to be the legit power forward we need on this team this season. Maybe a poor mans power forward is the answer as the team is as a roster right now.
Give him a 2-3 cup of coffee on that line and see how it works out. They are producing on their own (Neal and Malkin)... So why not give it a try. It could not hurt, its a no cost option.
