Suffice it to say that we probably won't be seeing Emmerton again.

That's kind of awesome. Nothing against emmerton. But, We are able to make an improvement, as minor as it may be, without losing anything.

He looked pretty good on the PK, but he didn't get a ton of playing time.  Too many power plays.  I'm looking forward to seeing him more in the coming games though, the kid definitely has moxie.


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

No actual improvement over Emmerton. Both are not that good 4th line centers.


Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

I'm not sure which game you watch. Would you care to elaborate?

i think Glendening easily looked better than emmerton ever has on the pk, he kinda looked like helm out there, that's good. Also had some sog.

He's a little better skater and better defensively with his stick than Emmerton.  Also fights through checks and seems to have pretty good positioning instincts.  Glendening's game will get better, especially if/when Helm returns and Luke stays in the lineup (which I'm hoping would happen, but we all know he'll be scratched for Samuelsson, Eaves, etc).

Apparently you didn't watch even one of Glendening's shifts last night. He wasn't just a little better than Emmerton, he was WAY better.

Right Hand shot who works hard every shift and kills penalties; and Babs wants to move him to wing when helm is healthy. I'd say he's effectively our eaves after this year.

He made that great steal near the end.

 

Liked what he brought to the PK.

He was fantastic. Couple rookie mistakes sure, but already an improvement over emdog. Emmertons skill set is that of a top 6 forward, but he is nowhere near good enough to be a top 6 forward in this league. Glendening just fits the mold so much better as a 4th line center, and it showed.

He's a good hardworking kid, the type of player that Mike Babcock craves.  He's also a very nice fellow.  I met him at camp, and he was saying, "I'm not famous yet."  "Don't worry,  We can say we knew you when."

 

And he likes my doggie, so he's thumbs up in my book, and paws up in Loki's.  :D
