He was one of the best NHL defensemen for the 5 years before the injury. He played one decent season after the injury, and then he went to become a good, but not elite, defenseman in the WHA. Basically, Green's ATD resume was built from 1965-69. The rest is just "longevity", since he doesn't really add much to that previous resume.
Oh I don't doubt the impact he had, let's just say he became a more well-rounded player and keep it at that. Believe me, you're talking to a fan of his.
Boyo do I remember those front-page newspaper headlines and photos though....created another woulda, coulda, shoulda scenario.
