With the Washington Capitals missing the playoffs the organization could go in a different direction with GM George McPhee and their coaching staff.
Defenseman Mike Green knows that his days with the Capitals could be numbered.
Green is entering the last year of his three deal. He’ll make $6.25 million next year with a cap hit of $6.083 million.
The Capitals could get some assets back for Mike Green instead of buying him out. Green is an excellent power play quarterback but lacks the defensive skills most teams desire.
The NY Islanders, Florida Panthers and Calgary Flames have interest in Green.
