what the hell's up with all this glendening love , hes a reliable 4th line player, but those type of players are a dime a dozen , hes not gonna score and neither is eaves and detroit desperatly needs GOALS
6'2 sheahan could of contributed , speedy ferraro , agitating callahan ... alot of fans been asking for nyquist and tatar here since last season and there finally up and easily 2 of our best forwards ... this just frustrating
Sheahan, Ferraro, and Callahan are all fourth-line maybes in the NHL at this point in their careers, at least in the Wings' system. Granted, so is Glendening, but he had a solid training camp, he was the only Griffin who showed up to that orientation camp, he's a right-handed shot, all he does is win, and he's just a really likeable guy. With about 4,000 of our top centers out, he - a centerman - just makes that much more sense.
Again, there isn't a huge difference between Glendening and the other three. But I think there's an enough to give him the edge at this point in time, in terms of comfort and reliability and the all-important Coach's Trust.
Bring the other three up when things are more stable and we're not absolutely desperate for as many points as we can possibly win (the Atlantic race is ridiculously tight right now. Very, very, very little separation in the top 4-5) and we can get a better sense of what they'd look like on an actual Red Wings team (as opposed to one where Andersson could be the second-line center).
