Glass provides nothing but a physical edge, but he's too slow for the playoffs and can't be effective.

The Pens will probably get smoked on the dot tonight and Jokinen could easily solve that problem. He's one of the league's best. Because Jokinen isn't in, Adams and his 42% faceoff is on the dot. Not good.

There's barely any fighting in the playoffs, so those inferring to Glass using his fists are way off. Don't need him.
our PK has looked considerably better while he's been scratched too. And Jokinen has killed penalties for years while actually playing center. We basically have 3 centers if we play Glass instead of Jussi. If he's in purely for his toughness, I'd rather dress Engo as a 7th D and occasional 4th line forward.
