In what ways is Matt Greene more valuable?

Lots of teams were after him, drove up the price. He's a guy who could have been had on the trade market, too.
What is your source for that information?

Souray is a better player, he's just highly prone to injury. He did a nice job in Dallas last year for the most part, they would have gladly re-upped at the same terms, almost 1.5M less than the Ducks paid though.
For the most part? He had a good first half, that's it. He's also a player that was playing in the AHL VERY recently.

Again, what's your source for the Stars willing to pay less than we did?
