And short of trading someone (not likely) or injury (always a distinct possibility), he's eventually going to the Manch if Doughty and the Kings can work a compromise (big if).
The Kings have Scuderi and Mitchell for blocking/changing shots. Oh, and they're BOTH leaders. Voynov is more versatile than Greene is, and his defense isn't too shabby either. Oh, and Vito doesn't take dumb penalties like Greene does. Maybe Voynov doesn't overtake Greene this year, it can certainly happen, but I don't think Greene is a part of the Kings future. Imo, he was brought in to help "mentor" young kids and to teach them to play the right way. We don't need that anymore. It's time to let the more talented guys play.
