Greening has all the tools required to be successful in today's NHL.

While the sample size on his NHL performance is small, I really don't believe this guy is going to regress, only get better. Greening is a prime example of how fans place way too much emphasis on draft position, without considering all the assets a player may posses.

Greening is big, extraordinarily strong, fast, possesses a great shot and extremely coachable and very intelligent. These are attributes that suggest Greening will continue to develop, and the level of performance rise.

You offer him a two-way deal and he only accepts for one year. Then what?

a) he comes to camp disheartened or pissed at the organisation, and doesn't play nearly as well, but can't go to Bingo without clearing waivers; he bolts to another organisation at his first opportunity
b) he comes to camp determined to prove a point and plays as well as he already has for us, and next year we have to give him a huge raise

Either way, we lose.

It's stupid to treat your players like numbers on a ledger. That's what Pierre Gauthier does. You treat them like human beings, like family, and more often than not they reward you. They want to play for you. That's what the good organisations like Detroit and New Jersey do.

At his salary number the risk was absolutely minimal. He makes less than a lot of fourth liners.
