Lumber being reassigned and Smith being put on IR makes room for the 2 callups.
Mangiapane was expected. Glass was not...
Glass called up? Is Mike Smith officially on the IR
Glass? Tanner Glass?
No (not yet) Lomberg back to AHL
Edit yes he is.
Yes and Lomberg was sent down as well.
So Smith is not day-to-day then :s
Possibly but he could have been placed on IR retroactive to when he was injured.
Although maybe better to have him eating popcorn than other guys.
If he ends up playing though, ugh
they always are
The other guys are not scoring anyway...at least Glass brings some toughness......should help out the softies on the team
I don't think Glass was nearly as bad as the HF hivemind insisted at the beginning of the season. I mean he wasn't any good either but still about as good as any other option we currently have for the 4th line.
Glass in probably means Ferland will not play imo
I liked Glass early in the year personally. I don't think he was ever a liability like some make him out to be. But he was a hard worker who banged and crashed.
I guess my issue is Glass is Glass, he isn't improving anytime, he isn't gaining any experience by playing and he has already shown he isn't good enough to be an NHLer.
Even though guys like Hrivik and Klimchuk didn't show a ton at least there is some potential they could be better at some point and could benefit from playing these games at the NHL level.
He might not end up playing but a line-up with Glass, Stajan and Brouwer is so slow, bad and old which seemingly every day in the NHL is shown to be a surefire way to lose.
I really liked Klimmer. Him, with Hrivik and Lazar would be an awesome 4th.
Glass has one job - cause chaos.
If he's not smashing and banging and skating with reckless abandon, he's useless.
yeah but it's not like Hathaway, Lomberg, Hrivik, even Lazar...etc have shown anything....the more they played, the more they prove they are not NHLer. All these guys need to be rotated, once the energy is gone, they are useless....unfortunately our coach is clueless on managing the lineup
