A lot has been made about how new head coach Barry Trotz will handle Alex Ovechkin and Washington’s offense, but what about defenseman Mike Green? Green surpassed the 70-point mark in back-to-back seasons and was a Norris Trophy nominee twice, but he was slowed down by injuries and hasn’t been the same since. Still just 28 years old, Green has become “an enigma,” as former...
