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.
How many years do you want to wait?

How much cap space do you want to spend on Green while we wait? Five million spent on Green is five million we can't spend on an impact player elsewhere.

For every Gary Roberts or Mario Lemieux, there are ten Peter Forsbergs.
