Hell no from Washington. Doesn't help fill any holes, just shuffles the deck. We don't need draft picks and trading one player with injury concerns (Green) for another (Mueller) doesn't exactly serve to fix that issue. If Stastny was coming to Washington, I could see an argument for this. But instead we're getting a defenseman with an even bigger cap hit than ours.

I hope you see why your analysis was terrible. Green was injured most of last season. He wasn't in shape when he returned from surgery, so he lacked his explosive skating ability and conditioning. As the season progressed, he began looking better and better as he got closer to returning to game shape.
