Ducks sign Green

Forward Josh Green has signed with the Anaheim Ducks.He has already signed with Ingolstadt of the German DEl,but the team was informed this past weekend,that green has reached an agreement with Anaheim.

Here is the link,but it's in German: http://www.augsburger-allgemeine.de/...geid,4288.html

What do you think?perhaps a replacement for a guy like King in iowa?

What is interesting is that Josh Green was the NHL's best penalty killer (based on GA/Hr).
An interesting take from HokeyNumbers

Green also has over 300 games of NHL experience, last playing with Vancouver, so he's a decent depth addition.

Anyone have any info on this guy? According to CBS Sports, he is listed 6'4 225. Power forward? Enforcer?

He played 05/06 and 06/07 for Vancouver,scoring 6g,7a/13 points in 90 games.He was playing as 4th line winger.For more information,ask the canucks fans.
Last season he played for Salzburg,scoring 42 points in 43 games and he was one of the best players in the elauge.But the Austrian leauge is only mediciore in Europe,so that's nothing to special.
I can only imagine,he will batlle for a 4th line spot,but we already have enough guys for this position.As stated before,I expect him playing in Iowa,providing some leadership for a young team.

I doubt Green would sign back in the NHL if he knew he was going to be stuck in the minors... IMO this is a move for the NHL team.

He's a 4th line player overall... provides grit and sandpaper, but isn't an enforcer... the key to his game is the PK - he was one of the canucks top PK forwards his last year with the team, on a PK which went pretty much the entire season as the top PK in the league.

he's not going to get many points for the team, and likely won't play any higher than a 4th line role... however he will help the PK, while providing some sandpaper in the 5 or so ES minutes he gets.

btw... there's also the Carlyle connection - who coached Green in Manitoba before going to Anaheim.

it has to be for the AHL, aren't we already completely overstocked on 4th liners?

He may be a replacement for Robby (in the event Scotty doesn't sign) or Moen and either one is traded.

I think this guy is a total depth player with the hope of cracking the lineup at some point. Like a Shawn Thornton or what Dan Lacature was supposed to be.

carter or marchant or possibly miller(to a lesser extent) could easily slide into those positions with no real problem.

You guys have such small imaginations. I'll dream big and hope that his signing means Marchant is gone. Potentially 1.5 million dollars in savings.

OK, I'll bite...

Here's a possibility, maybe just maybe, he is better than everyone thinks. If he can create space with his big frame for the scorers and win faceoffs, he just might be able to slide into the spot.

If he only played on the fourth line before and wasn't able to show his stuff, this could be his chance to shine. Goals will come if your playing with decent wingers.

I really don't think we have anyone else to fill the spot from our roster, Carter, meh., Miller no.

I doubt he'll do a better job on a second line than either Carter, Platt or Ebbett will. If the Ducks wanted to sign a 2nd line center this cheap anyone of Keith Aucoin, Michael Ryan, Jeff Taffe, Jason Krog and Kris Beech could do a better job on a 2nd line for the same prize.

A good signing though as Canucks fans like him since he did a good job as a centreman on their PK 2 years ago. But he wont be anything more than a fourthline player or #13 forward next season. I'll like this signing even more if it means Marchant will be dealt. Pahlsson, Carter, Moen, R. Niedermayer, Green, Getzlaf and Kunitz pretty much garanties we'll have a pretty solid PK next season.

I'll copy and paste my post from the Trade Rumours board:

I'm of the opinion that losing Green is one of the main reasons the Canucks penalty kill went from 1st to 14th over the course of one offseason. He played 2.5 minutes per game on the penalty kill and was only on the ice for 3 powerplay goals against all season.

He'll be a good pickup as a depth forward for Anaheim. He's got good speed, works hard, and will be good as a PK specialist.

This guy isn't replacing anybody. He's depth signing. Marchant, Carter, Ebbett, and even Sutherby if he's still around are all better and in front of him on the depth chart. He's call-up player. The kind of guy you're glad you have because he is cheap and can step in when you need him. But there's a reason why he was a fourth liner and why he went to Europe.

Canucks fans seem to think he's a great 2nd unit PKer. I'd love to have him replace Marchant. Marchant may be better, but we need cap space. 4th line center seems like one of the best places to lose salary while giving up the least in terms of contribution to the team. The only problem is he doesn't seem to be that good in the faceoff circles.

And besides, our PK sucked this season. We were 12th in the PK, which brings home how poor our PK was considering that we were 2nd in total GAA. Just think about how Dallas burned us in round 1. Although I personally feel more of the blame is on Pronger and Beauchemin than any of the forwards..

Marchant's better, Carter hopefully is, but I've seen little to suggest that Ebbett and Sutherby are clearly better than Green. I've seen him play plenty, and he's a very useful player. Depth signing, sure, but he could have an impact.

As for the PK, it functions as a unit, so I think the forwards are just as much to blame for the failures on the PK as Pronger and Beauchemin.

He's not really a guy who 'creates space' or is that physical.

He's a big guy who skates really well, has an excellent work ethic, and very strong defensive instincts. Very solid depth player on an NHL roster who won't wow you with anything he does but you'll come to appreciate his defensive play and ability to pressure the puck in the neutral zone over the long haul. Isn't physical and won't put up many points, but skates miles and is very handy on a checking line and on the PK.

He did a great job on the PK for the Canucks in 06-07 and I was really surprised he didn't get another NHL job last season. Happy to see him get another shot.
