(Proposal) 11th over all pick for Cody Glass


Recommended Posts

Glass had a breakout year last year. His 850k 1 year deal is expiring. He will probably sign a $2.3 million 2-3  year bridge deal. We are going all in anyway. I don't think you can get much better of a player for the #11 pick than this. 

 

Preds fans project him as their #2 C next year with #1 C upside in the future. I think he is a better player than Laffrenier now

 

Here's a Preds fans reaction

 

I probably would. I don't think most Preds fans would. But I'm also pretty sure that Trotz wouldn't... our centers are Glass, Parssinen, Novak, and Sissons (and maybe Johansen). That's not exactly an area of proven strength to deal from. 11th is really close and I feel like we'd have an excellent chance of getting a player who turns out to be better than Glass with that pick. Just... that player wouldn't play for us until several years from now. Whereas I suspect the Preds would prefer the more immediate contribution of Glass. But it's close!

 

 

Glass was pretty unreal down the stretch for us, no interest in moving him. He's very likely going to be starting as the 1C next year.

Glass is a 6th over all pick that is breaking out. 

 

11th over all just isn't very good and will most likely be disappointing or a total bust 

Glass is a 6th overall pick we took AFTER pettersson.  Petey is breaking out.  Glass is plodding along.

Here's the list: (alphabetical order by team)

  • Clayton Keller
  • Brandon Carlo *
  • Rasmus Anderson *
  • Devon Toews
  • Alexis Lafreniere
  • Jonas Brodin
  • Artem Zub *
  • Anthony Cirelli *
  • Timothy Liljegren
  • Shea Theodore

* denotes players I like

 

What do you think the chances are they any of those fanbases would agree to a trade straight up for any of those players ?

 

Some NYR fans are done with Lafrenier. Maybe they would take it

Petterson kicked Glasses ass and it isn't even close. It would have been a disaster if we picked Glass instead. Plus Glass got traded by the team who drafted him. 

 

But that's all besides the point now imo. He played legit NHL hockey in 22/23 and looks like he can be a 2/3 center.

Yup. Love to get Cody Glass here to be our 3C.

Could we do something around Glass and Johansen for Miller+? I’d be down for that…

yuck. we make that deal our 10 ply team becomes even softer. Miller is a beast and Tocchet will demand the best out of him for years to come.

Disagree... We have enough forwards, if your going to trade basically a top 10 pick in a decent draft, and nowhere near enough depth on D, why trade for a forward that is more readily available normally when the whole league is short D, especially RHD, let alone a PMD with size to crease clear for Demmer paired with a offensive rushing D like Hughes (not a big guy) to look out for him. 

 If I had my way, I'd have every pairing like that. 

And depth to cover.. I'd be drafting and trading for D prospects and picks until we have lots!!

 Both save us cap space and help with ELC's

  Bottom six forwards are a lot easier to find, I'd start at D first.. and then go after a 3rd line center (2-3 yr contract tops) and also trade for prospects to fill that ourselves and not pay top dollar when we don't have enough depth for a serious cup run NOW anyway, could we do it in 2 years? Idk I'd bet on 3..

 But imo, I'd get D done first or at least have priority. AND continue to aim to be a bigger faster team...

Everyone knows what the playoffs are like, Smurf teams never make it.. period..

Wouldn't expect him to be available.  Trotz talking of how veterans need to adapt and take on new roles as young players take their place.  Glass is expected to be their C1 next season playing alongside Forsberg. 

 

Alex Daugherty has been covering the Predators for various outlets and has just taken over Penalty Box Radio.  His take on Glass and Foote.

 

High priority – Get a deal done now!

Cody Glass– minimum qualifying offer $874,125

None of the RFAs listed below should be as big of a priority as Cody Glass. He took huge steps forward in his development last year and shows sign of being a solid 2nd line center. His passing and vision are his strengths and his work in the defensive zone kept him on the ice in crucial situations. His chemistry with Filip Forsberg showed a lot of promise as well. That’s a pair worth keeping together. 

Glass scored 14 goals and had 21 assists in 72 games last year. His 35 points ranked 6th on a Preds team that really struggled to put up offense, but his six power play goals were 2nd on the team behind Roman Josi’s eight. He’s a versatile, skilled forward that the Predators desperately need in their system right now. 

A qualifying offer is a given, but the Predators need to sign him beyond that. There’s not much room for a bridge deal (Glass, who is 24 years old, will become a UFA by age 27) so we are probably looking at either a one- or two-year “prove it” deal in the $3 and $4 million range. Or possibly the Preds offer up a long term deal like they did with Calle Jarnkrok back in 2016 (six years at a $2 million AAV). 

[...]

Low Priority – Let him walk?

Cal Foote – minimum qualifying offer $950,000

Sending Tanner Jeannot to Tampa for a massive horde of draft picks and Cal Foote was a great deal for Nashville. But, sadly, Cal Foote wasn’t the reason why. 

In 24 games with the Preds, he looked quite over matched in the defensive zone. Turnovers, rushed decisions, and way too many penalties. His skating speed is just… not good enough for the NHL. I’m not even sure he would make sense for the Milwaukee Admirals next year. 

And at $950,000? The Preds should consider walking away from Foote. 

As of now, Foote might be the 9th defenseman on the team, behind Josi, McDonagh, Barrie, Fabbro, Lauzon, Carrier, Livingstone, and then Spencer Stastney, who showed he’s more than ready for the NHL. 

Just doesn’t make sense. 

Let Cal Foote walk to free agency and spend that money somewhere else.

#11 and Rathbone

 

Hughes - Foote

Wolanin/OEL - Hronek

 

Petey

Miller

Glass

Raty

 

 

 

 

Cal Foote is very slow. He brings a lot of physicality and is a defensive defenseman however. I wouldn’t mind him but he would almost certainly have to be paired with Hughes.
