Washington GM Brian MacLellan admitted that re-signing Mike Green is "probably going to be a little complicated."
Green was Washington's highest-paid defenseman last season at just over $6 million, but he had a diminished role after Matt Niskanen and Brooks Orpik were added to the equation. He slipped to fifth among the team's blueliners in average ice time per game (19:06) but he remained the Capitals' top option for power-play situations. Green recorded 10 goals and 45 points in 72 games last year, but he may have to take a significant pay cut to stay in Washington. We would expect him to test the market, but a return to the Caps shouldn't be completely ruled out. May 27 - 12:32 PM
