Islanders defense is an atrocity. The only one with a bright future on the big club right now is Hamonic. Green would give them a 27 year old top 4 offensive defenseman locked up for the next 2.5 years. Green is one of the best offensive defenseman in the league when healthy and the Isles badly need help on the blueline.

Okposo and MacDonald are not part of the solution going forward IMO and The Islanders absolutely need a young dynamic top 4 defenseman.

If you get Green, you'll then also have Hamonic and hopefully some of the guys like Donovan, De Haan, Mayfield and Reinhart pan out to be young building blocks.
