Easy. What's Greene's role? Could Hickey fill it? LA has a plethora of such great defensive talent to the point that if you don't fill a needed role they have no use for simply a generally sound depth defensemen nearing his closeout date.

What I am surprised by is no one was willing to offer a 6th rounder for him. That bothered me more.
