Glass is an A$$ if he thinks this team, or any New York Team is winning the cup in the next three years. OMG who does this guy think he is the 2nd coming? Another brilliant move, waste of money, by the gm. He's as big a dope as glASS is.

Yeah he is the reason a 4th liner. We couldn't win the cup with the guys he is replacing either. So try again.

Corsi is such a small part of the picture. Does a 6% difference between he and Boyle mean much for a 4th liner getting 8-10 min per game? I think not

And it depends on line makeup/chemistry and the defensive pair out there too. And Pitt and terrible defensive depth. So I don't put much stock in this stat and it's annoying that it's so slow this time of year it was even posted on this site

Sure glad we let Boyle and Stralman walk and picked up a guy with the worst Corsi stat in the league to play on a puck possession team... good thinking.

While Tanner Glass is on this team, we don't have the cup.

Boyle is garbage 90% of the time and Stralman was not worth the contract. Glass replaces Dorsett. Get a clue.
