The Carolina Hurricanes are going to trade defenseman Tim Gleason
The Carolina Hurricanes are going to trade defenseman Tim Gleason. That’s how it’s going to be and fans may as well just be into it because it’s going to happen.
Recently, talk was thrown around of Gleason going to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for completely useless defenseman John Michael Liles. This trade was idiotic when it was proposed, and is idiotic today. However when it was proposed, trading Gleason in and of itself was stupid. Things have changed, the team has improved around him, and he has made a case for himself as the team’s new money pit.
If the Liles trade is stupid, where to send him and for whom?
Rumors speak of sending him to the Dallas Stars in exchange for Erik Cole, again. Cole has already served two tours of duty in Carolina and in both tours has proven about as reliable as scotch tape on a fighter jet. Furthermore, Cole is playing like his 35-year-old self in Dallas right now. His stats are awful and has just about nothing to offer the Hurricanes.
