“What are the odds of Washington Capitals defenceman Mike Green, once a Norris Trophy finalist, being traded at the entry draft or early this summer? I’d say 75-25. … The problem with Green is he can’t stay healthy. He’s had concussion and groin issues as teams keyed on him and pounded him routinely. … If he can get a defensively strong partner, he can be an asset, though. I can see the Tampa Bay Lightning, who are badly in need of a puck-mover, taking a shot at him. Maybe Florida, which has salary-cap room, or even the Detroit Red Wings, who do not have any right-handed shooting D-men. The Philadelphia Flyers certainly need an offensive defenceman, too, although would Washington trade with a division rival?”

I always liked Green and would love to see him in the winged wheel. Everybody keeps talking about how the Wings need a right handed, puck moving, PP QB defenceman and Green could easily be that guy. He has had injury problems recently but he is being asked to be "the guy" in Washington whereas, in Detroit, he could be a complimentary piece to a pretty descent group of defenceman. He in an offensive-defenceman that could really help spark the Wings goal scoring. I mean, he didn't get the nickname "game-over-Green" for being bad at video games after all. What's everyone's thoughts on him? What do you think he would cost?
