Mike Green Thinking Playoffs

Elisabeth Meinecke of On Frozen Blog caught up with Mike Green when he visited Powell Elementary school in D.C. as part of the city-wide DCPS Beautification Day.

Green said his workouts this off-season have been by far the most intense of his career.  Being conditioned for next year’s playoffs is already on his mind.

“Come playoff time, you’ve got to make sure you’re in shape, so I wanted to make sure I’m in the best shape possible,” Green said. “It’s been a tough summer.”...

When asked what he learned from last season that’s going to be the biggest improvement in his game this year, he talked about consistency and avoiding injury. Injuries have marred his past two post-seasons. Green also shared his thoughts on new teammate, D.J. King, and the idea of defenseman Willie Mitchell possibly being in a Caps uniform.

“I played against him when I was younger in the WHL, and he’s a big boy, so I know everybody’s exciting to have him here,” Green said of King.

On Mitchell, he said, “I think he’d be a great fit in Washington.”
