MIKE GREEN RUMORS & GOSSIP

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. With Karl Alzner and John Carlson also in the fold, the Capitals have depth on defense and no longer need the services of Green. The 28 year old tallied 31

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’...

Wings target Caps defenseman Mike Green as he’s ‘destined to be traded’

It’s been a difficult offseason thus far for the Red Wings fans who patiently await word on which defenseman could be the newest addition to the blue line this upcoming year. After being unable to sign the likes of  Dan Boyle, Matt Niskanen, and Anton Stralman last week Ken Holland and the Red Wings front office now turn to the trade market to fulfill that need. Arizona defenseman...

Here comes the Mike Green-to-Detroit rumor overdrive

I'm gonna be honest: I don't know what the hell to make of this stuff. This morning, MLive's Ansar Khan suggested that the Red Wings' "best fit" on defense is one Mike Green. While Pro Hockey Talk's Joe Yerdon attempted to debunk this theory given that no one knows if Green is on the trade block to begin with (see also: the Tyler Myers trade fandango...

Source: Defenseman Mike Green is Wings' top trade target

According to a team source, the Detroit Red Wings have determined Washington defenseman Mike Green is their top trade target. The source says the Wings have reached out to the Capitals regarding Green's availability. Although Washington has indicated Green is staying put, moving the right-handed defenseman would make sense given the team's cap situation. CapGeek.com reports...

Mike Green appears best fit for Red Wings, who need a right-handed shooting defenseman

As soon as the Washington Capitals committed $11.25 million in salary cap space to free-agent defensemen Matt Niskanen and Brooks Orpik on July 1, Mike Green's fate seemingly was sealed. Green is destined to be traded. The Detroit Red Wings, desperately seeking a right-handed shooting defenseman who can quarterback the power play, are an ideal fit. Unable to acquire a top...

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...
