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...
