This makes me inordinately happy, for some reason.  I really like this kid, and am happy to see him signed as a Wing, perhaps a career move for him.  Good deal!

 

He reminds me of a young Maltby... plus he upsets Crosby and make him cry.  :cheesy:

 

Now, celebrate with your first NHL goal tonight, Luke, how about it?  :thumbs-up:

Expected this ... Babcock is in love with him

Maybe with a lot of hard work and determination he will continue his goalless streak going into year 3

It's good that we'll continue to watch the kid develop, but develop into what I'm not sure yet.

I would assume 2.5 million for 3 years (833k per)

This is Babs new mancrush. He will be replacing Cleary.

No way, he's got Cleary locked up Silence of the Lambs style.

Sweet! Glendening is awesome.

Who friggin' cares about the goals as long as he's doing his actual job, which is stopping opposing players from scoring.

Going over Twitter, you'd think this guy was John Scott in terms of his effectiveness on ice.

Then I saw something along the lines of, "He pissed off Crosby to the point where he was more focused on his anger toward Luke than scoring goals." I have to agree, and I like the signing. He's an effective 4th line guy.

Great signing. He's an agitator and is an effective shut down guy. What a story.

Awesome, i'm excited to have him as a 4th line staple for the next 3 years, he plays smart and even though he may score 3 goals in his career he brings more to the table non-offensively related for this to be a quality signing for us. I hope he continues to develop his game and remain an agitator, but maintains a certain level of class and represents this team well.

I've liked what I've seen out of Glendenning this year, but I also don't want to get carried away.  Joakim Andersson looked solid last year, this season, not so much.  Then there's Quincey and Kindl.  While the cap hit is so minimal, and for him, probably feels like he hit the jackpot, I just don't like how readily the Wings hand out longer term deals.  It just always seems to come back to bite us.

capgeek has it at $628,333.  He gets a raise and the number is still low enough that he can be sent to GR with no cap penalty.


Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!
