Mike Green to Toronto

Assuming Toronto doesn't have a slurpee for an ice surface like Washington does his injury issues probably go away just like Varlamov's. Phaneuf-Green would probably be a very good pairing, better than the sum of its parts, especially considering that both of them have generally had crap for partners throughout their careers. They play a fairly complementary style as well.

Washington would probably be interested in some of Kulemin, Grabovski, Gunnarsson, picks and prospects. Liles would prob go back as well since he's on the outs in Toronto/would fill a PMD void. Is there a trade to be made there with some of those pieces?

Gunnarsson, 1st for Green, Perreault/3rd.

Green defines the exact opposite of what we need. Gardiner and Liles, Phaneuf, even Franson all seem to be more offensive. (Phaneuf more two way) I think we have a bigger need for a legitimate shutdown defensmen.

Green is very two way at this point as well. Phaneuf brings the hits, Green brings the mobility, both bring offense and both can play solid defense as well.

Phaneuf, Gardiner, Liles, Franson, Rielly.

Don't think we need Green, especially if a 1st is involved.

Green has altered his game and become a steady two-way D-man. Washington fans were fairly impressed with his defensive play.

I'd be interested in Green, for sure.

What would Washington need?

We need a RH shot.

We'd probably want Quantity over Quality (not being sarcastic) to help fill some holes.

I'm not so sure of that. It was said he was back to 100% before getting hurt again this season... Varlamov was just like him while here and he's been pretty much injury free in Colorado.
Most of us on the Caps board think its something wrong with our medical staff.

I'd do something like Liles, Kulemin, 1st (can be top 10 protected or w/e). Maybe something with Grabovski if leafs deem him expendable. Perreault could go the other way to fill in for him. Liles, Grabovski, Kulemin for Green, Perreault, Chimera. Dunno.

Wouldn't you want a defensive dman to be paired with Phaneuf and not an even more wreckless offensive one who takes chances?

And the Verizon Center ice.

Caps who have had groin injuries with WSH but not with other teams:
Varlamov
Poti
Green (has only played for WSH)
Vokoun
Laich (supposedly sustained during the lockout, but has been under WSH's strength & conditioning staff for a while)

Just off the top of my head.

High-risk, high-reward. Green has become very good defensively and I wouldn't mind him on the Leafs. He's still young and if he can stay healthy, he has a lot of value.

Unfortunately the risk if too high to give up anything of substantial value that would please Capital fans - only thing I can think of would be something like:

Green for MacArthur + Gunnarsson + low pick.

MacArthur can help the Caps on the wings and secondary scoring and bump Brouwer or Laich to the 3rd line, Gunnarsson brings a stable defensive presence (better than Schultz).

Johansson - Backstrom - Ovechkin
MacArthur - Ribiero - Brouwer
Chimera - Laich - Ward
Hendricks - Beagle - Fehr

Alzner - Carlson
Orlov - Gunnarsson
Kundratek - Poti

That's a pretty good top 4 on D.

Green would be nice, but we need a two way type defenceman. If we didnt have a surplus of offensive defenceman, I would have loved to see green-phanuef

If he's still as passive defensively as I remember him then I do not want.

No team wants the current Mike Green at 6 million. Teams have defenseman who can produce at a ~0.3 PPG pace while staying healthy and at half the cap hit. Everyone wants the old 20-30 goal Mike Green, but he's gone and will never return. Prime amnestry buyout candidate if ask me.

Smart boy . Green is so overrated IMO. He used to be GREAT offensievly, not he's only good. While being average/slightly above average in his own zone. And for that amount of money he's getting paid, he's now overpaid. He's injury prone as well.


No doubt Green used to have tremendous value, but now he's just a name and a big ''what if'' player. Teams should stay away from Green IMO.
