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.
League leader in hits by a defensemen, or at least was leading a few weeks ago.
I think most that are saying trade him are assuming a Brown trade as well that brings back a similar player, i.e. Schenn. Greene has value and I know Islander fans have inquired on numerous occasions.
Don't underestimate DL and his desire to find a tough, physical d-man. That was supposed to be Teubert who took over for Greene; now there is nobody.
