Stanley Cup contenders interested in Glencross

Damien Cox and Elliotte Friedman discuss all the news around the NHL including possible changes coming to Boston and give us an update on the Mike Babcock situation.

Calgary Flames forward Curtis Glencross hasn’t been happy with the way he’s been used this season. His ice time has dropped and so has his production – Glencross has struggled with just eight goals in 50 games this season.

This week, the Flames asked Glencross, who has a no-trade clause, to provide them with a list of teams to which he’d accept a trade. Originally it was thought only the Anaheim Ducks were on Glencross’ list, but according to Elliotte Friedman and Damien Cox on this week’s Headlines segment on Hockey Night in Canada, Glencross’ list has grown to include some other Stanley Cup hopefuls.

Friedman noted Los Angeles, Chicago, Nashville and Tampa Bay are interested in acquiring Glencross.

In 78 games across the past two seasons before this one, Glencross tallied 27 goals, so this year’s drop isn’t a minor one.

The 32-year-old native of Kindersley, Sask., makes $2.5 million against the salary cap and is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Glencross has spent most of his career with the Flames, but has also played briefly for Anaheim, Columbus and Edmonton.
