Instead of my usual game preview, I will use this blog for something more important – a tribute of sorts to Tim Gleason who returns as a visitor after being traded on January 1.

Maple Leafs welcome new defenceman Tim Gleason to town

Call it a new episode of Glea. Everything was wonderously new for defenceman Tim Gleason on Friday, the city, his new teammates, the rink and the blue sweater. After eight years in Carolina, he was even flattered to be ganged by the Toronto media, not every Leaf’s favourite part of the day. “Usually there are just two of you,” he said of the routine in Raleigh. “This is...

I am hearing today that the on-the-outs Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Tim Gleason could be on the move before the holiday trade freeze. Talked to a source who said, "the offers aren't moving much on this player from what I gather but the interest is still there and it seems like the Canes and Gleason alike would like to get the inevitable deal done sooner rather than later...

Canes’ Gleason, Komisarek want to be on the ice

They sat side by side on the press level of Toronto’s Air Canada Centre last week looking a bit antsy in their suits and totally out of place.
