their game-breaking puck-rushing ability.

something which Green also possesses - more than any other defenseman in the game today.

promise?

the kid finished 7th last year at age 22.

he's got a good chance at finishing with the league lead in goals, points, and +/- for defensemen this year.

he'll get plenty of votes.

Promise. If Green wins the Norris this year, I won't even close my account. I'll post something terrible enough to get me banned permanently. I'll also quit watching hockey.

The one man rush from behind the net to puck in the net. Boyle doesn't play that way. Green does with great success.

Yea, right. He is not going to win the Norris with Lidstrom around. But he is going to score more goals and more points than any defenseman in the league this season while playing 10 fewer games or more.

At his age his offensive game should continue to improve as will his defense. At somepoint he will win the Norris.

I do agree. At this point he may be the best defenseman in the league in terms of just offense. And he very likely could win a Norris or several in the future. It just won't be this year.

Will Theodore win the Norris the same year if that happens?
