Will Mike Green Make Team Canada?

from Dan Rosen of NHL.com,

Completely unprovoked, Washington Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau spent Tuesday morning lobbying for defenseman Mike Green to make the Canadian Olympic team.

“If I’m Stevie Yzerman, I’m looking at him as one of your top pair,” Boudreau said.

According to people that follow the Capitals closely, it’s the first time Boudreau has publicly made a pitch on Green’s behalf. It’s also an about face from last spring, when after the playoffs were over Boudreau admitted his disappointment in Green’s overall effort through 14 postseason games.
