Greening is a +3 while Daugs is a well deserved -6 for goodness sakes he's the worse of the 2. It's not the time to send Greening any messages outside of a good private raking over the coals. Why would Stache even consider dressing Daugavins over Greening for this game when they could have 2 very physically solid bottom lines?
I'm with you & have been defending Greening but he should have learned by now that he needs to be more physical consistently game in & game out to play in the NHL. I would prefer Greening over Daugavins but keeping him out of a big game like this for him could be the wake up call he needs. In NFLD they grew up either Habs fans or Leaf fans so a lot of family back home would be watching this game, that will hurt not playing. I really hope it lights a fire under him, not so much to score more but to get involved physically more, the scoring will come from that. Smith needs to step up as well, Daugavins should be put on waivers IMO.
