    This year he will likely split time between LA and Manchester.

    His upside is probably something like a poor mans Blake.

    So far he has been very good all things considered. I see him as a top pairing guy. I like the way he is adapting his game to meet his teams needs. He isn't stepping up into the play the way he used to but that is because his role is as his D pairings blue liner. I think a poor mans Blake is possible.

    Not if he keeps playing like he has, he will see no time in Manchester.

    Gleason was a former first round draft pick, and his success with Windsor aswell as on the international stage should all but assure him a promising NHL career.

    From my viewing, he looks like a guy that could put up 40 points, while taking control on the Kings powerplay. I'm not too familiar with the Kings line-up or organizational depth, but after seeing him often during his tenure with the OHL's Spitfires, I can't see Gleason as anything less than the Kings third blueliner.

    He's not afraid to play the body either, that may be what sets him ahead of fellow 20-year-olds such as Krajicek and Koltsov.
