I agree there is no cowardice on Green's part. Indeed don't hit may be a directive by Oates to not stir the hornets nest, so to speak. But think come playoff time, it will be: hit or be hit. Will he be prepared to hit? Shouldn't he practice some?

Green almost seems indifferent to most anything, and it seems more than hitting. A 6M salary will do that. He is highly skilled and can do a lot more than skate and shoot. While his defense is improving, I wonder if he is a good mentor for Carlson, whose game seems to almost mirror Green.

But our team is on the bubble and expect guys like Green and Carlson to take a few more risks and try and throw one significant hit per game. As it is, is any forward afraid to get hit coming into our zone against those 2, ever?

I think I could skate an NHL shift against our D and live to talk about it. They are our core, our highest paid D; but are nice guys. And nice guys finish last.
