Plekhanov and Glendcross

Hey guys,

I would like to know a little bit more about Plekhanov. What would be his potential? Upside ? Weaknesses? etc...

I would like to know the same info about Glencross even if he's been traded.

Plekhanov is currently on an AHL contract, mainly because the Jackets wanted to get a good look at him without potentially wasting one of the 50 NHL contracts on him.

He is more of an offensive defender, but isn't a liability in the defensive zone. He has a good breakout pass and good size. I think another year in Syracuse (hopefully with a two-way NHL contract) will give a better projection of where he will be, but I think he's got bottom pairing potential. If he can't crack an NHL roster within 2 seasons, he'll likely head back to Russia.

Glencross is a plugger, an energy guy who wins battles. He is an opportunistic scorer, so he will never be relied on for offense. He's the kind of bottom six winger that a coach can trust, however he is a dime-a-dozen player. Upside as a checking winger.

Excellent scouting report, reads like a pro report.

Based on months/years of reading your reports on players (mostly younger ones) I'd suggest you apply. I'd lay down a $2 bet you'd get the job. A paper $2 to, yu guys use the Tooney now...
