    that Kane goal shoudn't have counted, dammit if that were Homer doing what Pominville did there, they would've immediately waived it off of course it's also very likely we're not going to score again tonight, anyway, so......

    After a really rough start Geno is playing better. On Christmas day he had played 26 games had 2 goals 3 assists and was -8. Those number for a full AHL season come out to 6 goals 9 assists and a -24..... Yuck. Since then Geno has played 21 games with 5 goals 10 assists and is +5. Over a full season that comes out to 18 goals 36 assists and a +18. Which is about the same as last season. Not dominating numbers but a nice rebound to a really bad start. Last year he had 20 goals and 31 assists IIRC.

    That's not true. Daley gets 1/2 D minutes, and a ton of SH ice time too. 2nd to Green. Mike Green was a 3rd pairing defenseman for Washington before he came here. Just because we use him in the 1D role doesn't mean he is one. Put DK, Daley in that role and let Green walk away and one of Hickets or Cholo come in to take roles a little below that and it wouldn't really make a difference. Maybe our PP hurts a bit but oh well. Point is I saw complaints for Daley last season. Yet Daley is CHEAPER than Mike Green and plays about the same ice time as he does. 2nd most on the team actually. Daley is a bigger bang for his buck. In fact Daley is a former PP specialist when he played for Pittsburgh. If Green walks, Daley takes the point on the PP. And subsequently his point totals would increase as well. Green and Daley are about the same player, one is better defensively (Daley), one is better offensively (Green). Daley is the cheaper one. Except Daley is more versatile since he's technically both a PK and PP specialist.

    Until Green is traded, there is always the possibility that he isn't. I'm not saying that he shouldn't be, or that he won't be. I would trade him if he agrees to be. But since he makes the final decision on it, it's possible that the team he goes to isn't the team that offers the best return, if he agrees to be traded at all. Common sense says that Green should waive it to go to a contender and have a chance at a cup. Common sense says Holland should trade him and get a good return. Common sense does not always become reality tho. Follow this team long enough, and you're in for a few surprises now and then. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst. I do believe that in the end, Green gets traded. I would not be surprised however if he is not. Different people are motivated by different things. From the articles I have read about Green, its just an impression that I get. I don't know anymore about what motivates him than anyone else here, and I certainly don't have any insider information. But I do believe that he will be back next year, and i think its the right thing to do. I also don't think he'll get the return that some are hoping for. It's entirely possible that neither a 1st round pick nor a high end prospect come back. I would not be surprised if the return is a 2nd rounder this year and a 2nd next year. Obviously, I would like to see more, but I am not getting my hopes up. Hopefully, Holland surprises me.

  17. Zetterberg HOF Worthy?

    Jokes aside it has to be Brett Hull and no one else.
  18. Zetterberg HOF Worthy?

    Holmstrom to induct them both in.

    It's to the point now that I imagine Green has played his last game as a Wing until at least the TDL is over. I'm sure Holland is protecting him from further injury in case he indeed does get a deal done. Come on Yzerman, get that deal together!
  20. Rumors Thread

    usually I'm upset that Holland doesn't acquire enough players at the deadline, this year I'll be upset that he doesn't get rid of enough players! Ugh! I need another hobby!
  21. Rumors Thread

    Per The Athletic the Blue Jackets are now talking to Jack Johnson about an extension. That’s good time to take away another option for teams looking at Green.
  22. 2/22 GDT - Sabres at Red Wings 7:30 PM EST

    A game we will likely win and no scribblings in the thread? I am betting on a victory. We are a clear favorite in this one, which is quite a rarity these days. I am suspending our goal to drop as low as possible for this game, I want us dropping Buffalo.
  23. Rumors Thread

    I wouldn't mind him back, but at a much reduced price for nothing more than 3 years.
  24. Rumors Thread

    Ranking 30th in points, 32nd in points per game, 21st in power-play points, 51st in time on ice among all defensemen equals "middle of the road vet"?... Green is a solid top three defenseman on any team, top 2 on most, number one on ours, and we should just let him walk? He's well worth $4.5-5M for another 2-3 years.
  25. Rumors Thread

    Less than he’ll likely want/get somewhere else.. do like him but we have enough depth wingers. I’d take on his contract the rest of the year to make a deal with Toronto work though.. Green (salary retained) and Glendog for Liljegren and the rest of JVRs year?
