Look, everyone knew Shaw and Glass got brought in because of injuries. The team is healthy now, so someone is going to sit. Let's go down the list:

Strong: No, been solid all year.
Young: No, best offensive D-man.
Prophet: No, younger and just as good so he'll get the time.
Ringuette: No, playing better in the second half. Turning into Walch type.
Webermin: No, When healthy he's been solid.
Shaw: No, Second best offensive D-man

The closest Glass would come to cracking the line up would be if he replaced Ringuette and he isn't as solid defensively as Ringuette.

The same idea that applied to Lopez applies to Glass. If they want to ice time, they have to earn it. If they aren't as good as other options on the team, why put them out there? What, because they have some sense of entitlement? That's not a reason. Glass was in the line up for the last month. He had a chance to prove he shold stay there if/when the team got healthy again.
