A1 first step, good stuff Tex.
Still at his best, he plays much less than half a game. Taking away PP's, he is under 20 TOI most nights. The Mike Green drop off should not be limited to when he is out of the lineup, exclusively, if all the other guys have a lame duck first step (something I tend to doubt). Carlson and Karl wouldnt have been above him in plus minus last year, if The Green Effect is that pronounced, right?
It may be that when he is in the lineup, he is the target. So teams kill themselves trying to kill him, distracting themselves from winning. I dunno, but a team cannot depend on one Dman. Didnt we do just fine when Wideman came on board, Green out last spring?
It would be telling to see a stat that tracks average amount of time spent in D zone by D men.
