Money talks.

A team like EDM could use a guy like Greene, and they have money to spend.

Yeah, I can see EDM throwing 4M+ for Greene and making him the captain.

He will get offers from teams that are not dead ends like EDM. No one wants to play in that place. Its only a matter if time before Hall asks for a trade, then that team is truly done.

Veteran defenseman with playoff experience, a ring, and familiarity with the organization. They'll throw a bunch of money at him. Been saying it for a while. Seems like a perfect storm.

Matt Greene grew up in Michigan, went to college in North Dakota and played in Edmonton.

I doubt he has any problem with the cold.

You married herby ? Doesn't matter what Greene is ok with.

EDM is also the organization that didn't believe Greene would develop into an NHL defender.

Well, to be fair, they thought they were getting an all-star puck-moving offensive defenseman they thought could lead the attack from the back end.

As for what Greene is OK with - if his wife wants the $$$ to keep rolling in, she'll get used to the idea of moving elsewhere for a few years.
That said, I can see us offering Green 1 more year while we ease Bodnarchuk in, and wait for Gravel to move up.

Greene isn't exactly wealthy compared to other NHLers and this could be his last contract.

I'd be shocked if la moves Greene. Big glue guy for this team. I bet they let Mitchell walk and sign Greene to a three year deal at a reasonable cost. Forbort and bodnarchuck are not too far off. Gravel is in the system too.

Greene was solid as a rock throughout the Cup run and I think he's one of the reasons why their PK was tops in the league during that time. I think the time off with injuries over the past two seasons has slowed him down a bit, but seeing how Mitchell took a while to get back to form, and same with Regehr, I would think that Greene, who is younger than those two, could get back to being the tough bruising, net clearing defenseman we are used to seeing.

Nobody on this team cleans out the front of the net as well as Greene does. But of late, his game has struggled and I'm glad Sutter had the sense to reinsert Martinez into the lineup. His mobility opposite of Regehr has really helped give the Kings three balanced defense pairings.

Brown is also slowly getting back to the level of play that is expected of him, and Stoll has been playing great of late. The Richards line once again generated a lot of chances but just couldn't finish on any of them. I really like the energy we saw from the fourth line as well. Lewis has proven to me that he's not cut out to be a center. The guy is better suited playing RW and Fraser is a much better fit centering the fourth line (though I much prefer Vey in that position).

At this point nothing more really needs to be said about Kopitar's line. Shutting down the opponents top players on a nightly basis and producing goals. Jeff Carter is going to give other teams nightmares when he's flying down the wing during the Olympics.

Oh yeah, that Quick guy in net? He's pretty good.

I've said it before, trade Greene and keep Amart. Trade Greene in a package for help on LW.

I came here to say that Jarret Stoll has been playing some really good hockey lately. The Brown-Williams line has revitalized him.

Can someone make a gif of Cliffy dropping the gloves from last nights fight? I found it kind of funny how he did it.

I thought the Kings made Chara and Rask look downright pedestrian last night. Perennial Norris candidate Chara was on the ice for two goals against and got badly stripped by Dwight King for another chance. Vezina candidate Rask got cleanly beat twice and dropped big rebounds for a whole period.

Funny how one night the Kings put on a bunch of shots, control the game, and the board goes crazy about how much they suck and the next night the Kings put on a bunch of shots, control the game, and now the Kings style bothers nobody.

I thought Ricards' line was better last night. Would have liked to see them get on the score sheet though.

I came here mostly to pick your brains about the little Marchand/Stoll incident. I don't blame you guys if you're pissed, but I think we can all agree that worse has happened. So, what did you guys think? I usually roll my eyes whenever people get all up in arms about stuff that Marchand does (I'm not defending the face punch/slash, by the way), and, actually, I feel the same way about Dustin Brown and his occasional slip-ups. People really overreact to any penalty those two guys in particular take, if you ask me. Curious to see how you guys feel. If this isn't the appropriate place to discuss it, sorry about that.
Team was down at the time and he was showing emotion. If it was a king player who was pissed like that I would definitely be ok with it.
