Green's offensive game is very, very under-rated. 2nd, 2nd, and 3rd in scoring among defensemen. Both 2nds came before Orr exploded, and the 3rd was behind Orr.

Either he was very poor defensively or his reputation severely reduced his voting results.
No he was a good player before but tended to drop his gloves easily, (although I do like this in a player actually). Because of the plate in his head and the risk of injury he adapted to being more of a positional player, not taking as many chances or getting too rowdy, (he had only 4 fights after his injury).

He was a wee tad more cautious and took care of things in his own end more than he had before, things that didn't show up in the box scores or stat sheets.....and as a defenseman that's not such a bad thing, eh?
