Is strong defensive play, really Green's calling card?
If you go by actually watching games instead of hf's recycled groupthink from 5 years ago, yes it is.

He's not a guy like Alzner whose job it is to stay back and anchor a pairing defensively, but he can more than hold his own. He dragged Jeff Schultz to an NHL career, who makes Jurcina look like a legit top 4. If Reinhart can hold his own defensively on at least an average 2nd pairing level MacDonald-Harmonic and Reinhart-Green is a very strong top 4.
