Not gonna end well... Gonna be a lot more than a 3rd pairing guy is worth.

I say this as a diehard Ranger fan and someone who follows the Kings almost as much, Greene is NOT a 3rd pairing guy and can log a TON of Nasty, Hard-Hitting minutes and is one of the better defensive defensemen in the league. Be prepared to give up a bit for him.

Matt Greene is a very good 3rd pairing defenseman, maybe the best one on the 3rd pair. That being said, I wouldn't give too much value for a 3rd pairing guy.

Rangers and LA have talent-laden rosters tasked with identical goals. You might be better served trying to pull somebody off a team with less settled pieces, and more willing to ship bodies in and out.

You're right to want him, though.

The kings right now are looking for a vetern defenseman due to a injury to mitchell. I really don't see him being traded. He wears a A on his sweater and is very well liked by both his fellow players and management. When mitchell comes back and if we added someone to replace him ( rumours on leopold coming in) Greene would cost a frist and miller ( i know to much but you asked ) even then i dont see it imo suderi gets traded frist ( hes a free agent in the off season)

i wouldnt mind Scuderi on the NYR. he won a cup whenever he went to his new team...


id do Scuderi to NYR for St.Croix and 3rd in 2013 and Kings would get a 4th in 2014 (if he resigns with NYR) Scuderi would fit with NYR. blocks shots and has good leadership..

You would, we wouldn't. Scuderi is a necessary piece in trying for a repeat.

I'd love Greene. Price would be too much. No reason for LA to move him and they're obviously in win-now made as well. Bad trading partners.

The Rangers are not in a position to deal prospects and picks for what would likely be a 4, 5 or 6 defenseman.

Alot of teams would like suderi if he became available and i would think we would easily get a player and a high pick. There would also be conditions on trading him frist off the kings aquireing a defenseman in the next little bit to cover the injury of mitchell. Then the trade wouldnt occur untill mitchell is proven healthy. Thinking here of miller and 2nd in 13 or Hrivik and a frist in 14 He won't be traded cheap. No offense to St Croix the king have there centers for the next decade or so in kopitar richards and carter waiting to play center. The kings need wingers ready for play in the 13 14 season.

As i stated above this would only happen if the kings aquire another vetern defenseman in the near future to cover mitchells injury. When he comes back we ll have a extra defenseman thus making suderi available ( providing the defenseman aquired can take over for him )

From a outsider point of view i can totally see the rangers doing that if they feel its the final piece to the puzzle. There in a win now not later situation.

They made their "final piece to the puzzle"move when they got Nash.

Can someone explain how a player can be the "best bottom pairing defenseman" wouldn't that make him a top 4 defenseman?

Scuderi at this point is worth 1st+ good prospect. Try again.

Greene is just as valuable on the ice as he is in the locker room. With Mitchell hurt and Scuderi an UFA after this season, someone would have to really overpay Lombardi to pry Matty out of LA.

Were you not around for the whole "6 goalies strategy" last season? Defense isn't really our biggest concern.

With Willie Mitchell injured for 7 weeksish, no ****ing way does Greene go anywhere. He's one of the most loved Kings because he's funny, a leader on the team, plays balls to the wall every shift, sacrifices anything for the team, and fits the Kings style perfectly.

I would agree with you but according to 4th period ek and matt berry we are in search of a vetern defenseman to fill in.

I m not a ranger fan so i wouldnt know this 6 goalie strategy you talk of but at least two of your fellow fans disagree on ur need for defense or the offers wouldnt have been made.

No because he hasn't played top 4 minutes in his pro career.
