It's my understanding he'd be a UFA next summer.

That's a tough one then. It'll be on Washington to decide whether they want to take a risk on him regaining form and giving him a long term contract. 2 years, 10M might be a good middle ground for both sides.

Do Washington fans think Green could be moved this summer, if McPhee wants to make a conscious effort to go with this more defensive system?

There's no real reason to move him now while his value is low. He's still very capable in his own end when he's healthy (I'd say he's second only to Alzner in that regard). Signing him to a 5-6M deal still leaves us with 14-15M in cap space, so there's no financial motive. Really, if McPhee wanted to concentrate on defense this summer, he could very easily sign Suter and still have room to resign Green and Semin, especially if he gets rid of some dead weight (Poti, Ward, Hamrlik, Schultz, and Erskine are all bottom line players when they're not in the press box, and make up a total of about 13.5M in cap space). I suppose Green could be moved to send the team a message if the right deal was offered, but I highly doubt he'd be shopped.

Probably something around his current rate of 5.25M to 6M over a few years. His injury troubles have hurt his value, but the fact remains he is a capable #1 defenseman who had developed into a sound 2way defenseman (prior to his injury troubles) and had established himself as the best PPQB post-lockout to date.

I'm guessing he'll sign his QO, which would be 1 year, $5.25M.

if im green im not keen on a 1 yr deal, and if thats all they offer me, im sure i can find a team willing to give me a decent 3 year OS.


has the team used their arbitration elective yet? if not thats probably what will happen...

He's an RFA in a league that doesn't use offer sheets. He has no leverage besides arbitration, which he wouldn't do well in considering his injuries. A one year deal gives him a chance to prove his injuries are behind him and to cash in for real next season. The only reason for him to ask for a multi year contract now, with his value at a career low, is if he seriously thinks his career is in jeopardy.

stonewalling him on just his QO is exactly the type of circumstance that will cause him to actively search for an OS. just because they arent signed very often, doesn't mean teams arent offering them, and if all they offer is QO, then the OS will be better by a very significant margin.

and yeah obviously he wouldn't want arbitration, but the team might.

his QO is $5.25m. I doubt a player that hasn't scored a goal since October does much better than that.

That's a pretty insane qualifying offer number.

I really don't think he's worth over 5, he is always injury riddled nowadays, and his offensive game has declined.

There's some team out there with a real good stay at home d man who would probably trade said player for Mike Green.
