Green is supposed to be our #1 Dman. A TOI leader, the guy who conducts the PP, and creates O with his awesome transition game.

For whatever reason (injuries, mostly IMO) his O skills have diminished. Now he plays like a flashy #4 Dman on a good team. And his defense is always pretty shaky at best.

Another hole is that he is injury-prone.

Green is a classic problem. They expect him to be a top guy and he can't play at that level.
