The Malik Report

A Look At Mike Green

from Arthur J. Regner of DetroitRedWings.com,

In Washington, he was an offensive juggernaut and a Norris Trophy finalist based on the number he put up.

"I've been learning every year. Obviously, I'm a different player than when I was really young," Green said. "I think when I was young, I was kind of all offensive-minded, I didn't play too much defense, to be honest.

"Now I've tried to find a balance between the two. I think at times it's hurt maybe the offensive numbers but I think the well-balanced game is a lot better."

He has also become a leader in the dressing room and one player that he has helped guide along is forward Martin Frk, especially on finding the open spot to shot from on the power play.

"I think it comes over time (being a leader) with experience really," Green said "I have been in a lot of situations and have a lot of experience so I know kind of what to expect.

If you think Green looked impressive last night…wait until Kronwall bumps him off the Number 1 PP…you know…because he’s better at walking the blue line and everything.

the only line FS knows how to walk is the one the cops ask him to walk.

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related.

I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
