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?
same thing was said of varly when he left. things change. as for the power play....if you dont skate on the power play, you are not going to score. personally, think the caps have adjusted the pp to keep the puck down low as much as possible.

used to be that wideman and green and carlson were regular backdoor threats. caps dont even look at that anymore.

the caps play even the pp safe.
