Anyone think he'll have a bounce back year? I currently have him in one of my pools and starting to doubt he'll get back to where he was 3 years ago. (3 or so points in 30 games. Dating back to last year)

I'm considering trading him sometime next month for either Boyle or Shattenkirk. (Notables: Markov, Doughty, Campbell, Ekman-Larsson, Enstrom, Streit, Keith)
What do you guys think? Its a small pool that's why they're plenty of D-men left. Thanks

Pasty, if there's any truth to this, the question i would ask is "Was Green "burnin' blunts" when he put up back to back PPG+ seasons?".

Anyone remember what happened injury-wise to Green? The year following his two big years, he only put up 24 points and only played 49 games. This was followed by last years 7 points in 32 games.

The same year that we saw Green's point production dip in a huge way, so too did Alex Ovechkin to some degree. While OV still put up 85 (over a PPG), he regressed from the 109,110 and 112 he'd put up the 3 years prior. This definitely has to have had an impact on Green's point production!!!



from what i have been told he was doing this while in Hershey and continued into the NHL so it sounds like yes while he was tearing the league a new one he was, but maybe its finally catching up with him needless to say it shows a lot about his commitment to being a star player in the NHL

Green smokes up before games, this comes from a guy who played with Green in hershey and smoke up with him, needless to say this player burnt out and didn;t get offerd a AHL contract a few years back despite having pretty good numbers for a AHL goalie, so unless Green has gotten serious about his hockey and stopped riding his talent (wich his production and injuries suggest other wise) i would say he's going to have trouble getting his game back

Adam Oates could lose his job very soon if things don't improve.



No kidding! I'm tempted to either start a new poll or call up that old one regarding who's better, Sid the kid, or OV? Wow, "Alex the great", where are you???

Campbell, Shattenkirk, Doughty, Keith, Enstrom...

all better options than Green.

Trade now if you can
Guest3078 Posted - 01/24/2013 : 17:07:49
It's a straight points pool with 2 points for a goal and 1 for a assist.

I guess I'll make the trade sooner rather than later. Maybe sometime this weekend.
Thanks for the quick replies!!

I wouldn't wait till next month! I'd grab Shattenkirk NOW! Unless, and now that i think about it it prob is, month end is your trading period? In a way this helps you as it gives you another week to see if Green puts up some good numbers, if not, jump on someone else.

Hard to tell you what to choose with so many quality d-men and nothing to indicate your points structure, but . . . go with sure and dependable this short season!

Myself, from the options you give . . . I'd go Keith, Streit, Doughty, Ekman-Larsson, Campbell. But really, each of them is a better option than Mike Green . . . who really has fallen off the radar at this point and has never been the same since his major injury.
