Team USA may soon be in need of a defenseman or two. With Paul Martin's Olympic hopes in the balance and Mike Komisarek on the shelf since January 2nd, spots may be open. The Americans are going for that underdog tag with a young and gritty bunch, and with Komisarek questionable, you may want to replace that physicality on the back end.
Enter Tim Gleason.
Team USA may want another puck moving D-man to replace Martin, but that Komisarek sized hole should be filled with a strong, stay at home type. He may be a long shot, but as a Caniac, I will be rooting for Timmy to make it.
