The Capitals are unlikely to trade Mike Green prior to the March 2 deadline, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.
Green is an unrestricted free agent in the offseason. He means too much for the Capitals, who have designs on making noise in the playoffs, and it would probably be difficult for them to find a player who fit his puck-moving mold. Green has 36 points in 51 games this season. Feb 21 - 11:11 PM
