yeah that sounds about right.

Just don't expect him to provide any offense. He has 0 hockey sense.

Don't mind the Glass signing with Pittsburgh. Should bring some toughness to the 4th line. Pretty comparable player to Asham. Price is a little high IMO, but I guess that is what a lot of guys of his ilk are going for right now. So not too bad.

Glass was a top 10 guy in hits. Pens 4th line last couple eyars has a lacked a guy who hits all the time. Looking forward to seeing him play. Should be a decent 4th line in Adams-Vitale-Glass

i remember his first handful of games in vancouver, he was my favourite player. hit everything that moved, stuck up for teammates, fought a couple of guys, even scored a goal. he ultimately couldn't sustain that kind of energy over the long haul but you guys will like him. good soldier, well-liked team guy, completely unspectacular, rarely a liability if used right.

Really perfect analysis of him.

Very disappointed Buffalo didn't get him. He's who I wanted assuming we can't get Prust. He should fit in well on the 4th line with Vitale and Adams. Good signing by the Penguins.

agree to disagree, when i saw him playing in Vancouver i didn't see him as a serviceable player and i thought he would be one of those guys who falls back to the ahl, sure he is willing to drop the gloves but isnt anything great at it, he doesnt bring in much for offense, 4, 3, and 5 goal seasons, didnt see much of him on the jets though.

He's fine defensively, his hits can keep opposition players honest, and he is a middleweight kind of fighter. He can also chip in the odd (very odd) goal from a limited 4th line role...but temper your expectations. He's a smart guy, gives a good interview, and I think was a solid contributer to our locker room, and I'm glad he's gone to another good team since he left Vancouver and Winnipeg.

Offense isn't a problem in the Burgh. Led the league in goals despite Crosby only playing a quarter of the season. Besides, he's a 4th liner. He isn't expected to put up points. He's expected to work hard, hit and play good defense for his 8-9 minutes he'll get a game.

And while I do like Asham, he was a disaster on the defensive side of things. He's also a great fighter but would rarely punish anyone with hits.

Not that good defensively but at least he hits a lot and knows when to fight. I guess this is the end of the GST line.

Asham is a 500x better fighter, but I like Glass.

The guy wants to be a history professor when he's done with hockey. Got a great education, smart dude, always a benefit in a hockey player I think.

His hands are underrated. Best known for whiffing on an open net in the SCF, but tons of players have been there before.

Offensively he doesn't bring a lot to the table but from what I've seen of him, he's a bottom-6 guy who does everything you could ask and he has a really great personality. One of the best haircuts in hockey too.

I think he'll be a great addition to the Penguins.

Pens needed someone that can hit and is a willing fighter. The fact he can pk is a bonus too. He fills our 4th line needs. A bit expensive but that's the market. Good for him that he got paid a bit.
