Mike Green Will Hit The UFA Market

from Chuck Gormley of CSNWashington,

With six days remaining before the July 1 start of unrestricted free agency, Craig Oster, Green’s advisor since the time he was 15, said Thursday that Green will be leaving the Capitals and marketing himself to other NHL teams beginning today.

Green, who is at the end of a three-year contract that carried an estimated $6.1 million cap hit, was never given a concrete offer by the Capitals, Oster said.

“They haven’t really come out and said there’s no way they’re signing Mike Green, but they haven’t attempted to do so, either,” Oster said. “I think the understanding is that it doesn’t work. Based on everything right now, we’re proceeding with the full expectation that Mike will be a free agent on July 1.”

With 10 goals and 35 assists, Green is coming off his best offensive season in five years despite averaging his lowest ice time [19:08] since his first full season in Washington in 2006-07.
