If the Wings have to move some prospect contracts so be it, Glendening deserves one and will make the NHL with someone in a bottom six role and if it is Detroit people are going to love this guy.
Ferraro is light but while Glendening is short hes pretty heavy, I think hes aroun 200 lbs. I've been saying it all year but I really think he would be an upgrade over Emmerton.
Emmerton turned himself into a PKer and bottom 6 type because his offense didnt translate. Glendening won defensive player of the year over Sheahan in college, hits, fights a bit and produces at a similar rate as Emmerton did in GR without getting scoring line ice time.
He really deserves a shot
