When I read this morning’s article in the Ottawa Sun which indicated the Senators had expressed interest in Calgary Flames forward Curtis Glencross, I was hardly surprised.
Slated to earn $2.55 million through the 2014/15 season, Glencross is a rarity on the Flames’ roster – a marketable commodity who is actually: a) cost-effective; b) at a relatively decent age; and c) good.
Whether Glencross would be willing to waive his no-trade clause and be willing to accept a move to another organization remains to be seen, but with Jarome Iginla bolting for brighter pastures and Mika Kiprusoff potentially on the way out too, the Flames’ are up to their knees in **** and their GM, Jay Feaster, is digging them out using a spoon.
The Senators do have some familiarity with the player however.
Obvious #Sens connection on Glencross rumours. While in Anaheim, Bryan and Tim Murray signed him as a college free agent in 2004.
