ya, am I missing something? Is Greene even a legit top 4 defender across all teams yet? I think he'd struggle just to get to that level, yet he's 5 years for $3 mil?
At the same time, DL has ensured he didn't lose Lubo for nothing. We now have both of these players for the duration of Lubo's contract. Props to him for coming through on his gamble. DL really does break the bank when it's al ong term contract, really strange.
