    Luke Glendening signs 3 year extension

    DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings have signed center Luke Glendening to a three-year contract extension.

    The Red Wings announced the move Saturday, a day after beating Buffalo to strengthen their position as a wild-card team in the playoffs.

    Glendenning has no goals and six assists in 51 games this season as a rookie. With 78 hits and 32 blocked shots, he has earned ice time this season for a team that has been hit hard by injuries.

    The 24-year-old Glendening was not drafted after playing at Michigan, where he walked on the team. He went on to play for the Providence Bruins in the American Hockey League and the Toledo Walleye in the East Coast Hockey League. Glendening started this season with his hometown Grand Rapids Griffins in the AHL.

    Doesn't have a lot of upside.

    Has no upside. The role he is in right now is the role he will play his entire career.

    What are the terms?
    You need centerman that can play two ways and if they donít play two ways in the end, you canít win, because the guy you are counting on canít get himself on the right side of the puck enough. So sure he can score, he can score but his team loses every night, I didnít know that was the objective. I thought winning was the objective. So if you centers canít play down the middle, and canít play without the puck, you have no chance.

    But he's really good at that role, and I like him. I like this.

    Oh I agree Ez, just dont want people thinking he will ever move above his 4th liner C, PK shot blocking role. Not saying he is bad or not valuable because its been a while since we have had a defensive specialist that will stay in that role and we dont have higher expectations for.

    Ya, I don't get how anyone could see him as more than what he is, except just a better version of what he is.

    Every team needs grunts and they got him cheap. Still would have liked Maxim Lapierre there. Bigger, faster, and hits. The downside is he is older
