    That's actually why I'd rather trade Pulock... even after moving Hamonic, there is going to be a logjam with Toews and Aho pushing hard to make the NHL. I think Mike Green would sign here if the Islanders trade for him, it's just a matter of how much he wants and does it fit Garths cap structure going forward.

    I think the return would likely be higher than that IMHO. Generally, I think you'll find more teams that are interested as interest in defenders tends to be high, both at the TDL and in general.

    There's lots of fellow Leaf fans, so I wouldn't put much emphasis or worry on that.

    Werent most defending Dekeysey as a legit top 4 dman?

    If not, then what the hell was Holland thinking in giving him $5 per long term?

    He fit Babcock’s system like a glove and looks terrible in Blashill’s, though I think he was overpaid by 500k-1m regardless

    Or, like a lot of players, they regress after their first year. The idea of the sophomore slump exists for a reason. Some people break out, others don't.

    You mean his sophomore year where he put up 31 points as Detroit’s most reliable Dman? Dekeyser played 150 games before his career took a nose dive under Blashill

    Pulock for Green works for me. And I do think he would re-sign.

    I think there will be many other defensemen that would be a much better fit for the Maple Leafs than Mike Green.

    I think it would be a mistake for Toronto to target Green.

    Not sure what other D would be available. I do agree, would prefer a more D first type top 4 upgrade.

    i wouldnt do that

    a 32 year old 6m defender in decline vs a 23 year old 1st round pick on an entry level contract

    everyone knows it takes defenders time to develop

    if snow made that trade Id fire him

    The better question is would the isles meet his contract demands.

    The Isles are refusing to give De Haan, a solid #3, $5m per.
    I have serious doubts they give a declining Green( $6m per) ,the big money he will be asking for on his next deal.

    Exactly, the Shatty trade is a great comparable.

    IMO, Green would take less money for a shot at a good team/ cup chance.

    Not going to knock Green, but at his age; he shouldn't be leaving money on the table....this may be his last contract.

    It's a fools game. We all know the position takes time to learn but for some reason fans won't accept that mistakes are part of the process. Not one of us ate Steak out of the womb. We all started with baby food. Why is it so hard to accept

    Any chance you'd make it CGY's first?

    I'd guess Green's TDL value is a 1st and a 3rd (or other picks/prospects that add up to about the value of a 3rd).

    I doubt you'd see as big of a conditional pick value included, if any, as we saw in the Shattenkirk deal, as Shatty was a hotter UFA target.

    Somebody on here the other day was willing to give up a 1st and a conditional 2nd if he re-signed. I wish that guy was a GM. I'd take it in a heartbeat.

    To add, everyone knew there was a very slim chance that Shattenkirk would re-sign there.

    I think Toronto will be in on him and I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up a Leaf either at the deadline or in free agency
