During the Oilers' cup run Greene alternated with Tarnstrom as the teams' 7th defenseman. He averaged less minutes per game than any other Oiler Dman.
Just because MG has looked slightly better then Sean O'donnel at the same age does not justify this ultra risky contract.
Greene is the Armstrong of defensemen.
If Greene doesn't step up his play big time, this going to be a terrible contract.
