Green's assist totals are not high enough for the overwhelming-points-lead-regardless-of-defense argument to bear fruit, in my opinion.
He's going to win the goals for defensemen title, and he will probably win the points total by a hair, but I don;t think he's making up his deficits in assists and plus/minus.
Granted, I think plus/minus is often a BS stat, for individuals. Plus/minus aggregates say more about a team. Plus/minus tells us that Boston has been a dominating club this year, for example.
But if he did...then what?
