Season Outlook For Mike Green

08/09/2019 at 8:35am EDT

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

2019-20 outlook: Green is expected to be healthy and ready to go in training camp after an injury-riddled, illness-plagued stretch during which he also missed the final nine games of 2017-18 due to a neck injury.

If healthy, he’ll be one of the team’s few scoring threats from the blue line, man the point on one of the power-play units and be among the club’s leaders in ice time. He is likely to be paired with either Danny DeKeyser or newly acquired Patrik Nemeth (and Filip Hronek paired with the other), giving the team righty-lefty, offensive-minded/defensive-minded combinations with its top two pairs.

If the Red Wings are out of the playoff picture in late February, they’ll look to trade Green for a draft pick, assuming he’s healthy. He has a limited no-trade clause (can veto a move to 10 teams).

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
