He will have a good career in the league.

Stone ripped up the WHL, and was Canada's best player last years WJC.

And both these players are big tough guys. I wouldn't trade these guys for any player on the Sharks.

Agreed. But its true that Greening isnt getting enough love in here, his value definitely sky rocketed last season. He still needs one more year before he could be the centerpiece in a deal like this, but regardless every single GM in the league would take him on their team.

He's an incredibly smart and hardworking guy who has a ripped 6'3 215lbs frame, and can skate like the wind. He'll either continue growing into a top 6 defensively responsible power forward, or stay an elite 3rd liner. He wont regress, Im positive he'll have a successful career in the NHL, he's smart enough to find a niche.

He's also showing that he knows a thing or two about putting the puck in the net over in the Danish league (I know its nothing to brag about).

17GP 13G 12A 25P

Point is that his value isnt high enough to trade at this point, because he has the makings of one of those guys that end up far exceeding expectations.
