TK is what he is. If he can provide smart play and balls to the wall pace... I'm happy. I don't expect 4th liners to score. I think he can handle 4th line mins better and play his buzzing style after PPs and PKs.

I actually don't hate Glass as much as other people. He's a good 4th liner maybe 3rd liner on another team but he's in over his head on the PK.
the obvious solution to this is to play him more than 6 minutes a game.

And no, Glass is not a good 4th liner. At best, he's a capable NHL body. And there's not a single team in the league that he'd be a 3rd liner on. Not one. If we had a 5th line, he shouldn't be on it.

Dupuis - Crosby - Iginla
Kunitz - Malkin - Neal
Morrow - Sutter - Cooke
Bennett - Jokinen - Adams
Jeffrey - Vitale - Kennedy
