Mike Green can become an unrestricted free agent after the 2017-18 season.
Green was by far Detroit's top offensive blueliner last year. He averaged 0.50 points per game, which was nearly double that of Nick Jensen, who finished second among Red Wings defensemen with 0.27 points per contest. Detroit's other rearguards combined for 17 goals, while Green finished with 14 of his own. It will be interesting to see if he's willing to take less money to stay with Detroit or if he will be used as a trade chip at the deadline. Still, the Wings will be hard-pressed to get offense from the back end if Green is gone. Aug 9 - 6:25 PM
