Does Mike Green still fit in Capitals puzzle?

Just as Barry Trotz has visions of multiple forward line combinations dancing in his head, Capitals assistant coach Todd Reirden has a variety of defensive pairings he’d like to see once training camp rolls around in September. “It’s going to be a competitive situation,” Reirden said last week as the Capitals’ development camp drew to a close. “We have to see what pairs...

One Capitals columnist believes a Mike Green trade would yield Gustav Nyquist in return from Wings

The Mike Green trade talk has almost entirely originated from Detroit-area sportswriters (though NBC Washington's Adam Vignan poured some cold water on the theory that Green's going to be traded at all), so Comcast Sportsnet Washington's Chuck Gormley's examination of a possible Green-to-the-Red-Wings scenario merits mentioning... Especially given that Gormley believes...

NHL Trade Rumors: Mike Green to Detroit Red Wings

Jay LaPrete/AP Photo Mike Green of the Washington Capitals is close to being traded for the 2014 NHL offseason. GM Brian MacLellan only has $1 million left in cap space after signing Penguins free agents Matt Niskanen and Brooks Orpik.

Red Wings targeting Mike Green for trade?

Now a week removed from the start of NHL free agency, the Detroit Red Wings still have yet to find their coveted right-handed defenseman. (They also have yet to sign any new players to the roster, unless you count likely AHLer Kevin Porter.) All signs continue to point toward Detroit GM Ken Holland chasing a trade, if he plans to do anything at all. On Monday, the Detroit Free Press’...

After free agency splash, Capitals hope to help get Mike Green ‘back on track’

The speculation had frothed since the season ended, wondering whether Mike Green would remain part of his team’s plans, no louder than after the Capitals left free agency with $69 million committed to two new defensemen. Green’s status, as an unrestricted free agent next summer with a hefty $6,083,333 cap hit (and a limited no-trade clause), could provide enticing trade bait...

Do You Want Mike Green?

With new management in place, the Washington Capitals may want to strengthen their defensive play and may think about moving Mike Green. He will be on his final year of a contract with a cap hit of just over $6M. If he is available, would he be a fit for the Wings? He does shoot from the right side, would be a great PP addition but his defensive side is at times a liability...

Capitals' Mike Green designs cool NHL '94-inspired t-shirt

NHL ’94 never goes out of style. Capitals high-scoring blueliner Mike Green earned the nickname “Game Over Green” during the 2007-08 season for his frequent and timely late-game heroics. Fans made their own custom jerseys with the nickname to wear at Caps’ home games, but the ever-fashionable Green has a better option. Green launched his own clothing line over the offseason...
