Green Update

Here's some reaction to defenseman Mike Green being assigned to Hershey today.


"That's their decision. They obviously have a plan. Obviously, [the NHL] is the best league in the world and I'm playing against some of the best players in the world. It made me realize the magnitude and the effort and the focus you have to put in every night to be good in [the NHL]. It's been a great experience and I'll be back there soon."

Coach Glen Hanlon:

"For us, with all these defensemen here, it's the easy decision because he can down. From a hockey standpoint, I want to see him play some games down there and get back to playing up in the neutral zone. I want him to carry the puck and create some offense. We want more offense from him. It's an opportunity for him to go down and do those things."

"There's no guarantees in this business, but there's a pretty good chance he'll be back sooner than later."

Hanlon also hinted that another roster move could be in the works for tonight. It must be made by 5, so be sure to check back.
