OK so what about Gary Roberts? Remember when he was "done" in 1996 after an awesome career? It took him about 2 years and he came back extremely strong. He sufferred a far more career threatening injury than all of Green's combined.

Lemieux came back from cancer and chronic back problems and was awesome.

There are plenty of players with far worse injuries than Green who have came back to have great success. It takes time in many cases to full get your groove back.

As far as the playoff goes...who has been Green's dpartner for the past several years??? He has had junk to work with and we never got him a compliment like Buekeboom or Samuelsson. The burden on him and him alone was far too great. That has been discussed many times.

Now he finally has a half decent partner in Hamrlik and they are leading the team in +/- for the series and have been excellent.
