What’s your favorite bad/good/bad-good joke about the Calgary Flames reportedly handing enforcer Tanner Glass a PTO?

From here, there are mainly variations of combining “KO,” “PTO” and “TKO.”

For others, a lot of the humor revolves around the low opinion many hold of Glass’ on-ice contributions.

(Word about the Flames handing Glass a tryout comes from reporters including WFAN660’s Sean Hartnett, Sportnet’s Roger Millions, and News 1130’s Rick Dhaliwal.)

Flames fans who are especially worried about Glass messing up what could be a pretty impressive lineup shouldn’t get too worried, at least yet. After all, it’s just a tryout, even if the above joke inspires some shakiness.
