the caps leading scorer on defense for the last 16 games is hamrlik, green, wideman and carlson who all have 3 pts in that time.

dont judge any offensive d based on the super rope a dope.
First of all, I don't agree.
The power play alone could add 30 points to anyone who logs major pp time. Further, even if you're not joining the rush, a smart dman who can pass will accumulate secondary assists under any system. Just look at the two studs in St. Louis. They each posted .5 ppg and play incredible d.

Second, Green has played 50 some games in two years. Too much risk. Why plan on filling such an important role with someone who can't be counted on to even show up?
