He did this while playing substantial defensive minutes and having defensive anchors by the names of Shaone Morrisson and Jeff Schultz around his neck for most of it
That's usually how pairings work. Offensive defensemen are paired with shutdown defensemen.

"Defensive anchors" wasn't a compliment. There's a reason Schultz spent close to half this year in the press box and Morrisonn spent the year in the AHL.

If Caps fan are happy with Green, and the Wild aren't going to overpay to get him, then this doesn't make much sense.

Generally shutdown defensemen are supposed to know their head from their ass though.

Best partner he ever had was a 39 year old Hamrlik.

No interest in Green, unless you want to do PM Bouchard for Green Straight up.

I hope you called him Matt Sheppard on purpose.

Sharks fans will get a good laugh from that.

I think Caps would seek more immediate help. 1st in 2014 is not gonna help anytime soon.
What if we add Chandler Stephenson from Caps side to the equation?
