The guy is a warrior and a leader on this team.

Not to pull the "I have played hockey all my life and it's clear that you haven't ever laced up a pair of rental skates so I know more than hockey than you!" card, but people who think we need to dump Greene have ZERO freakin' clue.
so true. Greene is the ideal bottom-pairing defenseman. We'd all love him to cut down on penalties, etc, but he brings things no other does to this team.

Look around the league at 5-6 defensemen and let me know if there's someone you'd have in his place. Hell, for better or worse, Greene would be second pairing on a lot of teams.
