Trade Green, Retire Zetterberg?

Blog: The Malik Report By Paul

Helene St. James answered some questions from the fans, this is her response on trading Mike Green and will Henrik Zetterberg retire.

If they think they can make it into the playoffs, they probably will hold on to Green. He’s their only real source of offense from the back end. If, like last season, they deem the playoffs unlikely, absolutely he will get moved. And he should fetch a nice return — Brendan Smith yielded a second-round and third-round pick, and Green has way more offensive skill. Green will be highly attractive to a potential contender looking to add scoring.

As for Zetterberg, I think it will depend mostly on how he feels, and, to a lesser degree, whether he is having fun. I’ve never seen him as upset as he’s been at times this year (after the Oct. 26 game at Tampa Bay, after the Montreal game). When he signed his 12-year, $73-million contract in January of 2009, those long-term deals were in vogue as a way for a team to sign a star player to a front-loaded contract, with the expectation the player would walk away before it expires without consequence. Since then, cap-recapture penalties have been instituted, so teams are penalized if a player retires. If a player is unable to finish his contract because of a medical condition (such as Chicago’s Marian Hossa), he can be placed on long-term injured reserve.
