Greene did not meet the 1MIN/game cut off in 11-12, but he still posted a a 2.44 P/60, which was better than all our other defenseman. Why does DeBoer insist on Mark Fayne when Greene has the track record to be serviceable on the PP?
I can answer this question, I think, although it's not clear the answer is a good one. It's because Fayne is a RH shot while Greene is a LH shot, and DeBoer (Oates?) likes having a RH shot on the right point on the PP.
