Talked to Glen Metropolit

Glen was recently in Toronto for a friends wedding and I was able to talk to him...

Glen still stays in touch with a few habs inluding Gorges, Gill, Gomez and Moen to name a few...

Glen states that Gorges really wants to stay with the Canadiens and states that he is in amazing shape as well and feels he has a lot to prove. Glen believes Gorges will sign with the Habs...

Glen who also stays in touch with some of his former Boston Teammates and he also attended a few games in Vancouver and keeps in touch with Thomas, Lucic, Thorton, and stated that some of the bruins felt that the Habs were there toughest test during the playoffs.

Glen had a great year playing in the Swiss A league for Zug as he lead the team in scoring with 53 points in 47 games (Not sure where he finnished amongst the leaders, but I think he was up for an award or won an award? ...he really loves playing in the Swiss League, but really wanted to return to the habs last year, but they were only able to garner him a 1 year 2 way contract...and signed with the swiss team for 2 years and will make close to 3 million US over that contract.

Glen played with Raphael Diaz this past season and he was asked for feedback in regards to Diaz by Habs brass. Glen stated that Diaz was being scouted by several teams and that he has alot of upside. Glen states that Diaz is a very good skater and posistions himself very well and has good vision on the ice. Glen states he has a bullet of a shot. Glen feels that Diaz biggest challenge may be the physical aspect of the NHL, and feels that he will adapt and he states that he will probably start of with the dogs but end up with the habs at some point.

As far as toughness goes Glen thought that that was the deciding factor in the first round against the Bruins. Glen said that Habs brass had been approached by some of the vets last season to address the issue of size and grit, but it was not addressed Glen thinks the habs don't necessary need a goon but a couple of big bodies that can bang and drop the gloves if needed.

Glen believes the habs are very close to being a contender and wishes them the best!

Very interesting indeed. Metropolit was a trooper, I liked him a lot.

The way we acquired him still makes me laugh. '' Hey dude you've been claimed off waivers,, pick up your stuff and go in the visitor's locker room.''

I actually think it made sense the way he wrote it. Yes it was repetitive but he wanted to make it clear what was specifically said by Metro. No shame in being thorough, or else it just sounds like a bunch of speculation based on what Metro said. He made it clear in his post exactly what was said by Metro. I don't see why people are focusing on that, it's a great insider info type post.

I read "Glen" so many times in the first post that it doesn't even sound like a word anymore. That was the most I've ever seen someone use another person's name in a paragraph

Anyway I appreciate the post, it's nice to hear what he has to say, I liked him when he was here and I followed him in the swiss league for most of the season, but I don't know how effective he would be anymore.

To sum it up, good article, but you should work on your writing there Glen.

(Your name is now Glen)

I did mention his name often didn't I, but as another poster picked up that I was trying to word it as Glen did. Glen is a good guy! and Glen is also a big hockey fan as well GO GLEN GO!

well this is like when we hook up with Claude Giroux once every summer... The kid is amazing when he comes back to town and he has plenty of stories to tell. I can tell you that Giroux can't stand Tomas Plekanec and P.K. Subban. I can understand about Subban but Plekanec was a bit suprising. His best buddy tried to get a turtle neck and #14 for a charity game in wich he participated, but the programs were already printed so he had to keep his #9 .... LOL
