You didn't address my point at all. If you watch Green routinely, you'll see he does that kind of crap often. However, he at least fights for the puck against the boards, is willing to take and give out hits, and is willing to at least prevent players from setting up a screen at will. A player doesn't need to be a physical force, but he should at least try. Look at Timonen; he isn't a big dude, and he doesnt lay people out like larger defenseman...but he's tenacious. Carle, not so much.
If you want to call that evidence, thats your prerogative i guess. But Im going to simply disagree, mike green is not bad at defense. He is a good defender.

Is he as good at defense as pronger or timonen? No. But those are two all-star shut-down defense-men, so thats not at all what im saying.

im not going to argue this further b/c its a waste of my time.
