Mike Green >> NY Rangers

at the draft....

Who and what would you be willing to give up....?

Girardi - Top Prospect and a pick?

Not worth trading away the barn, which is what it would take I reckon.

Yea definitely passing on this one.

I want Marc Staal to continue to grow his offensive game, I don't want him to be responsible for covering up all of Mike Green's mistakes.

Also the price tag wouldn't be worth it for what it would take to acquire him.

I'd love to trade for Green.

He's extremely underrated. Guy's been up for the Norris, and people act like he's worthless.

Due primarily to inflated offensive numbers playing with some great talent.

He is and probably always will be a trainwreck defensively. Dont get me wrong, I understand the need for some offense on our backline, but I'd rather have 6 guys back there that can take care of their own end first and foremost.

Guy is a tool with no heart.

Guy is out of the lineup and the Caps win a ton of games and get their mojo back...he comes back and they get dumped in 4 games against a team that is able to capitalize on their gaffe's.

In addition, he suffered 2 concussions this year...so, it would make total sense that Ranger fans would want to give up very good players and picks for Green.

While not going to deny his talent, I will pass on acquiring Mike Green.

His concussion this season has me concerned, less so when taking into consideration the puck he took off the noggin and wasnt affected by that.

However, I'm not sure I want a completely one dimensional defenceman right now.

Staal will never have Greens ability to create offense. A talent like Greens is far more elusive imo. Not that I would swap Staal for Green... although I'm surprised at the boards meh for the leagues top offensive D man, especially when we do have some depth at solid D oriented D to pair the guy with...

Gotta say you guys are being pretty harsh on a very talented guy. He's pretty much a talent this team completely lacks

No see you're putting words into my mouth.

I never implied Staal will develop into a 25-30 goal defenseman. I said that I want Staal to continue to improve his offensive game (maybe 13-15 goals would be nice) and not have to worry about covering up for Green's constant defensive gaffs.

He's not a "trainwreck". He's not Ray Bourque, but he's not Marc-Andre Bergeron, either. He has the defensive capabilities of a 2nd pairing defenseman, and the offensive capabilities of a #1 defenseman. I'm willing to deal with a few gaffes here or here for some offense.

No, people are acting like it's a pretty unlikely scenario that the Rangers can swing a favorable trade with the Caps for Green.

He's as good as McCabe is defensively.

Which is to say that he's not that good defensively.

Another thing to consider - how many points would he get here if Torts loses confidence in his defensive ability and plays him 9-10 minutes a game instead of the 20+ he gets now?
We've seen this year that in a close game if Torts doesn't trust a guy defensively, he doesn't play.

How about Gilroy and a 4th for Erskine.

Green has a big shot but can't play defense. That, and Washington will want a roster player, prospect and a 1st for him..so major pass.
