I like this. We could really use an agitator. Getting a 3rd is also nice.
Carcillo is actually a good teammate, too. Laviolette doesn't play him all the time for whatever reason, so I would really like to send him somewhere he can get regular 3rd/4th line minutes, and upgrade the forward talent level a bit. I don't like that Shelley takes regular shifts with Laperriere out (possibly for good). I heard Glencross wants to get paid this offseason, so he might be a pure rental for the Flyers, but I still like the forward corps much better with him in it.
Glencross looked awesome tonight. I would definitely do this deal. Carcillo doesn't really have a role with Lavi.
How is Curtis defensively?
Glencross is very solid defensively... he has his lazy moments (alot less thn other guys, but they are still there)... but overall he is solid... he has also really come into his own since joining the Flames... he had a good offensive year the season before joining the Flames but was still establishing himself as a regular NHLer... he was an ok 3rd liner... but he has become much more dangerous offensively and has become an excellent penalty killer... something he never did any of while with the Oilers or Blue Jackets... in fact he is now far and away the Flames #1 penalty killer (next closest regular plays 37 seconds less per game on the PK)
he will be an asset to any teams playoff run... the problem will be retaining him as I (among others) believe he will be looking for an opportunity to increase his ice-time and prove himself as a 2nd liner
If Glenner has a great couple of months pre deadline I wonder if the pick could be a second instead of a third with Carcillo... or possibly the Flames would throw in a filler player (no longer JD Watt ) to even it out.
