Left Wing: Curtis Glencross

We all know that Matt Beleskey would be a great Left Wing for the Pittsburgh Penguins, but I’d like to visit another possibility. Curtis Glencross is an option the Penguins could consider.

The 32 year old winger still has what it takes to contribute as a top 9 winger in the NHL. His numbers have slowly decreased over the past few years, but that has been due to his bad luck with injuries. Many Penguins fans will probably disagree with signing Glencross because of his age. The last thing we need is another contract like Chris Kunitz on this roster, right?

But, watching highlights of him play, it reminds me of how Patric Hornqvist plays.

Glencross likes to be in front of the net and score second chance goals. He also has a very good wrist shot, which has been impressive over the years and a reason the Washington Capitals decided to get him before the trade deadline. This guy would look with Evgeni Malkin. Here is his goal against the Rangers.
