Right now I don't really think there's much of an argument for Green. Phaneuf is the better defender by a huge margin, and Green's past two seasons he has been scoring at a pretty abysmal rate.

Basically, what you're asking is, "Do you think Mike Green will return to 70 point form?" because 2008-2009, 2009-2010 Mike Green is an entirely different beast than 2010-2011, 2011-2012 Green. Phaneuf is considerably better than the latter, but the former is one of the most dominant forces in the league (even if he's mediocre defensively).

I'm not the biggest fan of Phaneuf. In him I see a player with a lot of tools, but without the intelligence to really take full advantage of them. That being said, I think he's a significantly better defenseman than the Mike Green we've seen lately. The Mike Green who is the best offensive defenseman in the league has an argument, and with the numbers he was putting up I'd say it was a pretty good one, but he's not that guy right now.

Green AINEC

Celine Dion is only slightly better defensively and way worse offensively.

I take a healthy Mike Green over Phaneuf very easily.

Some people really haven't watched Green in the last 2 years. The guy is really bad at this point.

I know it's due to injuries but I can't understand how you can say he's better than Phaneuf when he's played the way he has in the last 2 years.

He's been really bad guys, believe me I took him in fantasy last season and watched a lot of the games he actually managed to play. He isn't the same Green as he was in 2009 or 2010.

Voted for Dion Phaneuf because he is also the more physical Defensman.

I interpreted it as a "who will have a better season" whenever hockey restarts and I had to go Green. With this long of a layoff, injuries should be behind him.
