Even half broken, I suspect he is of more use to us than what George can fetch. I think we will hold and see if he learns to take hits. He needs to learn to lean forward and take hits on his hips, brace up against the boards and watch the forechecker fall to the ice. He needs to protect himself much better overall. D men can take hits to make plays and still survive.

I do not think I have ever seen a player of such high skill have such a low level of self preservation. Teach him Oates.

Cam will help but our D needs help even with Green.
I'm not sure exactly where this window is where we knew Green sucked in the playoffs but the injuries hadn't set in yet. Green was our best player in the 5 game win over the Rangers, and I believe got a big injury late in that series. I don't think we could have traded him between rounds 1 and 2.
