Glass realistically has little offensive skill and should only be on the 4th line. I hope AV finally learns that this season.
.
Let me blow your mind and tell you why AV puts Glass on the third line:

When the going got rough last year, which inevitably it always will, we need some extra jam on the third line. While Glass wasn't the optimal choice for this, he was the coaching staffs only viable option. The general manager didn't give the coaching staff the tools necessary to create the kind of third line necessary to make some room on the ice.

Is this Glass' fault?No. Would any similar player be put in the same position? Yes.

It doesn't matter who is on the 4th line. Every once in awhile coaches bump guys like that up, replacing a more skilled player, simply to send a message of 'get your head out of your butt' or 'if you won't bust your butt, we'll replace you with someone who will'.

In an 82 game season that stuff happens.
It's not the coaches fault, nor is it the 4th liners.
It is the fault of the skilled player who is in a funk, or not competing hard enough.

Furthermore, Glass specifically was the one promoted from the 4th line to 3rd because he distinguished himself above the likes of Hordichuk/Johnson/Rypien/etc.

Tanner Glass did everything he was asked to do and then some, and did it well. Our best 4th liner by far in 2009/10 (along with Hansen).

He's worth every penny (NHL wise) of the $625,000 he'll get paid.

first of all, calm down,

Mario bliznak has played extremly well in the AHL, gillis said multiple times he has impressed him, the coaches staff at the moose also said he has drastically impressed them with his hard work ethic, tenacious fore checking and great PK skills.

This kid just needs a chance

Again, how does that fill Glass' role? And I like Bliznak and think he has a good shot at the 4C this coming season, but that sounds more like Ryan Johnson's job than Glass.

What's wrong with some competition? A couple will make it and the rest will be in Manitoba.

The coaches like Glass because he doesn't try to do too much if he's bumped up the lineup. There are plenty of 4th liners who get bumped up to the 3rd line, they try to do more, and they just wind up making mistakes. Rypien has been guilty of this, IMO. Whenever he plays more or plays centre, he handles the puck too much and he's just not that good at it.

That's been my main beef with Hordi since he's been here. Too often he'll get the puck on his stick in his own zone and instead of just chipping it out, he tries to make a play beyond his skill level and turns it over. Glass wasn't nearly as guilty of this and thus had some more trust from the coaching staff.

Agree with people saying 4th liners doing too much when getting promoted. Get the puck deep, and go forecheck. Wear down the dmen with hits and make them think twice about getting the puck in the corner with their head down.

I completely disagree with your assessment of our 3rd line. Barring anymore upgrades I'd be fine with a Hodgson - Manny - Hansen 3rd line. It would be MILES better than last year.

Hodgson > Bernier
Malhotra > Wellwood
Hansen = Hansen

Right now I think all we need is a solid 4th line guy. Someone like Asham.

Agree.
Wellwood and Bernier were useless on the 3rd, how could it be worse? Thank god our 2nd powerplay unit wont contain those two as well.

I love that we have so many roster players early in the summer, it sure gives these guys a lot of motivation to train hard. Glass is an easy guy to like, and he's paid reasonably, what's not to like?

Summer: when HFBoards gets in-depth about the signing of Tanner Glass. Decent 4th line plug, although I'm surprised its not at the league minimum.

I kind of like HFBoards in the summer. It's quieter, and only the most hardcore fans remain (generally, fans who know a little more than the average person).

Glass sucks, I was very unimpressed with him last year. Too slow to hit, no touch, and is even a below average fighter.

Pretty much. I wouldn't call him slow he just lacks hockey sense. He did throw a few nice hits but most were pretty soft.

He's a solid 12/13 forward but nothing more. All we kept hearing all season was how he hadn't scored since November. Overall he's much better than Hordichuk, but who isn't.

Glass is a pretty good 4th liner. He wasn't very noticeable, but for 4th liners, that's a good thing. If you notice them too much, they are probably making mistakes on the ice.

I'd be fine with a line of Glass - Perreault - Oreskovich with Rypien and Hordichuk subbing in for tougher match-ups.

I think Glass got misused last year, be it because of the coaching staff or management. Wellwood with Glass and Bernier/Demitra is a line with almost nothing in common all the way across, I usually called it the "spare parts line". For 625k, if Glass does what he did last year, I will be ecstatic. If he some how winds up on Keslers line, or filling in for a Sedin, then I'll have a problem, but again, that won't be with him.

On a deep roster Glass is 14th forward/callup material. On a shallow roster (like the Canucks have had every year since about 02/03) Glass is a competent 4th liner. Poor hockey sense, average skater (straight ahead speed is very good, agility is bloody awful), fearless attitude, good teammate and solid body checker.

To be fair to him he may actually be a slightly better player than he showed last season, as getting saddled with full-blown AHL talents like Johnson and Hordichuk will drag anyone down with them.

My only problem is that carrying 4 guys on your roster who are not good enough to play penalty kill and are only there for toughness (Glass, Rypien, Hordichuk, Oreskovich) is exceedingly stupid. There should an absolute maximum of two of these types on your roster at once. Good teams have guys who can play on their fourth line, not a bunch of middleweight goons.

Victor Oreskovich doesn't belong in the "only bringing toughness" group with Rypien, Hordi, and Glass. In his 50 career NHL games hes has 26 PIM's. Not really numbers that scream "goon" to anyone. This kid isn't a bad player at all. He's a good skater who finishes his hits often and finishes them hard. He'll drop the mitts when needed but I think anyone expecting him to fight like Rypien will be dissapointed. On the contrary, if you're expecting Rypien-type hockey skills you'll be more than pleasantly surprised.
