Hes played great and this is by no means a demotion, go to bingo with some new confidence and go on a nice playoff run

Also, they've seen enough of him. His spot on the senators is his to lose.

Would you be equally as stunned if he started the season alongside Spezza? Any rookie that plays alongside Spezza has a shot...wouldn't expect it...but just sayin.

When Greening came up he said he was happy to come up but was torn becuase he really wanted to help the Bingo Sens get into the playoffs, and mentoined how important it was for the town if the team got into the playoffs.

Sounds like a team player

Always has been. That's why I was stoked to see him on the big club.

He stepped up many times to protect a teammate after a questionable hit.

So here's what Greening seems to bring:
Elite speed: Faster than Vermette (perhaps not agility)
Hard shot: Over 100mph
Smarts: Academic, well spoken (may not be hockey smarts)
Integrity: Team player, great attitude
Defensive acumen
Size: 6'2 210lbs

6 goals, 6 assists, 22 games: 22G, 22A = 44P in 82 games

What he lacks:
Quickness
Hands
Physicality with his frame


7th round steal, might make the 2005 draft not seem so bad. He's been incredible consistent at each level. ~40 points with strong two way play seems like a fair expectation IMO. Kind of like Fisher; if he brings the intensity Fisher did, he could be a special find.

Greening is a thug. There's nothing to dislike about the guy. He seems genuinely kind and quite sharp in his interviews. On the ice, he produced a 44 point pace in his first stint in the NHL, contributed physically, showed chemistry with everybody he played with, he's got speed, strength and smarts. He's the kind of guy you want on the ice at all times in all zones.

Got a goal in the Binghamton game tonight, too. This guy looks like he could replace Fisher. The left-wing version, that is.
