Sae that. Not good news, as Green was pretty much our only D-man with any kind of offensive production. One of the kids will have to step up, because our other D-men have shown that they can’t do it.
I’d just assume the Wings wait and try to find a better D-man when one becomes available and develop our prospects earlier than we might otherwise want than pick up scraps.

@SpikeDDS I have been reading that Hronek is a lock to make the team even before the Green situation, this may force them to keep Cholowski as well. In a perfect world we have Green in the lineup from day one but this may force us to give a couple of the kids a look as Kronwall is certainly not the answer anymore, Ericsson never was, Jensen is hopeless and Daley and Dekeyser are both useful but are limited offensively.
