any confirmation on whether it's a 1-way or 2-way contract?

my guess is that this is a signing for the Ducks, not Iowa... his last contract with the canucks was a 1-way contract... instead of signing a 2-way contract the next year, he went to Europe, where he can no doubt make more money than he could in the AHL.

why would he now sign a 2-way deal to return??

Green is a 4th line player, who'll help a team on the PK (was a key part of the canucks PK, which was #1 in the league)....

don't see him coming back to NA though to play in the minors at this stage... expect to see him on the ducks full time next season as a #11-13 forward.

not a bad option at $500-600K .... at least he brings something to the table, being a solid PK player.

It's a no-risk move. In his one full year with Vancouver he was an excellent 4th line centre. Great on the PK and a very good team guy.

He will get a perm, grow a moustache, buy some bell-bottoms and wide-collared paisley print shirts, and cruise around town with George Parros in their pimped out '74 Cadillac convertible. They will solve mysteries, and meet babes.

Josh will need to work on his catch-phrase.

I'm not sure if you're just trying to make stuff up to take a shot at Green because you don't like him??

he played for the canucks 2 years ago... that's when they had the #1 PK in the league... that's when he played a key role on the PK.

Last year he went to Europe.

So he's ONE year, not 4, removed from that role.

and it's not like he's 38 years old or anything, where he's been on decline on his last legs... the guy is still shy of 31 right now!

Damn...I was hoping he would play on our 4th line again. Really missed him on the PK last year. Above average speed, hits and an excellent PKer. Good pickup by Anaheim.

Good speed, great compete level.


Doesn't hit hard, his shot is awful.



Ok 4th line guy/PK guy as everyone else has said.

I said it when we lost Green a year ago - he is a replaceable player... not a guy that is going to put any team over the edge.

however, in a 4th line role, he could be a valuable player still... after not having him for a year, and going with Ritchie last year as his replacement, I'd personally rather have Green back.

Ritchie has more offensive skills, but in the role that they'd be filling, Green's PK ability and overall grit, which IMO exceeds Ritchie's, would be a welcome addition.

Green's not a skilled guy... not a guy that will get any offense for your team... but if you're looking for a good character guy that'll do whatever the coach asks him, and play his heart out to help the team any way he can, sticking up for his team-mates, and especially help the defensive game, and the PK, then he's a solid addition....

what more would you want from a 4th line guy?

I'm of the opinion that losing Green is one of the main reasons the Canucks penalty kill went from 1st to 14th over the course of one offseason. He played 2.5 minutes per game on the penalty kill and was only on the ice for 3 powerplay goals against all season.

He'll be a good pickup as a depth forward for Anaheim. He's got good speed, works hard, and will be good as a PK specialist.

I'm not too familiar with Green - is he basically the Canuck version of Marty Reasoner?

I'd say they are a similar type of player, though Green doesn't have Reasoner's speed (though he is a good skater) or scoring touch.

I think you may have that flipped around - Marty moves like he's wearing frying pans instead of skates

Oops, that was just me being an idiot. For some reason I was thinking of Todd Marchant.

But yeah, flipped around it makes more sense.

I liked green when he was in Vancouver. He doesn't have an offensive bone in his body, but he was one of the reasons why our PK was #1 in the league in 06-07

I was going to make that exact example between Ritchie/Green, but I didn't want people to think I was just finding a forum to spout off on my dislike of Ritchie.


But yes, in a 4th line role I would want Green far more than Ritchie, since Green is a decent 4th liner. I never loved Green that much (He missed so many open nets, I ranted about it often) but upon seeing what a crappy job 4th liner Ritchie did, as compared to what Green did, I'd much rather take Green.

Solid role player for the Canucks 1 year ago. Has great size and speed, very little in the way of hands but very good defensively and on the PK. Why the Canucks chose to sign Ritchie and Isbister to 1 way contracts over him is beyond me.

i wouldn't say green have no offensive ability at all. he had 2 goals and 7 points in 57 games his last season with the canucks, but he hit 4 posts early in the season and just couldn't buy a goal. if those 4 shots went in, he would have 6 goals and 11 points in 57 games. not bad for a 4th liner playing with cowan and average about 6 mins 5-on-5 time (no PP time).
green have some skill, and he works hard, so he'll get some points. he's much better than ritchie, what a mistake siging that guy
