Mike Green’s Game Is Misunderstood

from Jeff Blair of the Globe and Mail at CTVOlympics,

In some ways, it is about Boudreau searching for respect, and reading between the lines it seems as if Boudreau views Green’s status as being characteristic of that fact. He has taken note that Hockey Canada’s brain trust were Western Conference guys and that they leaned toward Western Conference defencemen. Just watch, he says. The Norris Trophy won’t likely go to Green, either.

Boudreau believes that Green’s game is misunderstood. Had anybody from Hockey Canada called Boudreau about Green - Boudreau says he doesn’t know if Capitals’ general manager George McPhee was ever called about Green and McPhee respectfully declined to comment - the coach would have told them Green takes risks because the team asks him to do so. The quickness he shows on offence lends itself to quick defensive recovery, too.
