I think leaving Glendening on the outside looking in is a pretty big stretch. If anything, I think Glendening being on the 3rd line is indicative of Blash having a higher opinion of him than the guys used on the 4th. It's not like he's Pulkkinen and suited for a scoring line - he's the prototypical 4C. I can't imagine him being left out of the lineup for Andersson or Ferraro.


I'll will be pissed if Andersson is in the lineup ahead of Jurco or Pulkkinen. I know, one is a "center" and the other two are wingers, but we have more than enough viable options down the middle that Andersson doesn't need to be in that 4th line center spot... 

A by-product of having Larkin make the team though, right? It likely pushes one of those guys out. Otherwise, we're looking at Jurco or Pulkkinen on the fourth line next to Miller-Glendening.



With Kindl on the IR, they're carrying 15 forwards and 6 defensemen.

Why do we keep Cleary when we send better guys down doesn't make sense to me

I didn't like the Cleary signing when it happened - I still don't. He hasn't taken a job from anyone "better", though. Cleary's the 14th forward - a placeholder until Helm and Datsyuk return. If Ferraro is waived before Cleary, then there's something to complain about.

You're not going to have Athanasiou or Mantha sit every night in the NHL, instead of playing first-line minutes in the AHL.

Jensen is fast. Other than that, he's nothing special. There's a reason the people who see these players every day on and off the ice choose one player over another.

I think his skating alone makes him special enough to play on the bottom pair. He's got great mobility on the blueline, he can rush the puck up the ice and get back to cover his position quickly. During the TC training camp, he spent some time as Ouellet's partner. While XO roamed, Jensen covered for him. His speed allows him to play a solid two-way game.

I also think he has a solid first pass out of the defensive zone. Ouellet might have better instincts, but I think the way Jensen performed during the preseason is enough reason to keep him up over Ouellet right now. At the very least, he deserves a shot to show what he can do during the regular season in the NHL.

I'm floored he made the team, based on how they've operated in the past. It's crazy to think the kid basically went from possibly being sent down to Grand Rapids, to centering the top line.

Not shocked that Callahan, Miele and Lashoff went unclaimed.

Richards getting his SC ring is the source of all my Twitter-related issues today.
