Since July 1, not a single person has articulated sound reasoning for the New York Rangers signing Tanner Glass to a three year, $1.45million per year contract. I’m not about to try to spin this. He is, by all objective metrics and observations, a bad hockey player at the NHL level. He’s about as useful to continue reading...
If you’ve been coming here for a while, then you know we very rarely call out management decisions. It’s not our style.

Shero brought in Tanner Glass last season, he was looking for a solid 4th line
contributor -- someone with some versatility and physical toughness at a
relative bargain. In his years with
Vancouver and Winnipeg, Glass scored a handful of goals but was mainly known
for his physical presence. That puts him
in a large pool of potential 4th line players like Craig...
