RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

While Green was once again hampered by injuries last season, he did manage to play in 35 of 48 games, notching 26 points on 12 goals and 14 assists. Green hasn’t played a full season in three years but remains a fine offensive defenseman. Keeping him healthy is a major priority for Washington and one way of accomplishing this might be to reduce his ice time. Green did finish the 2012-2013 regular season strong, grabbing a point in seven of his last eight games. This was a reminder of what a healthy Green is capable of and you can draft him with confidence, just remember to have a solid backup plan in place if you decide to roll with him.

2012-13

Green signed a 3-year, $18.25 million extension with the Capitals in July on the heels of the worst offensive season in recent memory, finishing with seven points in 32 games. Whether that new deal will affect his performance is not yet known but what we do know is Green missed substantial time last year with a groin strain. In fact, Green has not played more than 50 games in either of the last two seasons. Green insists, however, that he will be in good shape as practices start for the 2012-2013 season. The injury concerns are there, but there is definite regression in his statistics; he failed to score a goal after October 22 last year and had little offensive output. If Green stays healthy, the potential is there for a 20 goal, 40 assist season based on previous production.

2011-12

Green went through a very frustrating season last campaign as he battled through multiple injuries, including a head injury. Considered one of the top defensemen in fantasy leagues, he did not live up to expectations last year. With the emergence of John Carlson, Green may not put up the daunting numbers he did when posting over 70 points, but even with the slight downgrade should still be valued as a top pick on defense.

2010-11

To the Capitals, Green stands as a vital member of the team�s power play. To fantasy owners, he�s easily the top fantasy defenseman in the NHL, and for good reason. The Canadian blueliner completed the 2009-10 regular season with an unprecedented 76 points in 75 games � totals that would be acceptable for a star skater, let alone a rearguard. Further, he's averaged 36.5 points on the power play over the last two seasons and the Caps should remain an elite club with the man advantage.

2009-10

This kid just continues to amaze at the young age of 23. After leading all defenseman in 2007-08 with 18 goals, Green just went on to post 31 goals the first to put up over 30 goals by a defenseman since Kevin Hatcher in 1992-93. He also etched his name in the record books after eight consecutive games with a goal by a defenseman. He was not greedy either adding 42 assists during the year. He earned himself a bid as one of the Norris Trophy finalists after his spectacular season and has solidified himself as one of the league’s top offensive defenseman. He has become a power-play machine, finishing last season with 38 points on the man advantage, 18 off his stick. His talent can only increase and he will man the point again on the top-power play unit. He should continue to get about 26 or so minutes of ice time if not more in some situations. He was somewhat quiet in the postseason adding a goal and eight assists, but the best is yet to be seen from this dynamic blueliner.

2008-09

After leading all defenseman last season with 18 goals, Green has solidified himself as one of the league’s top offensive defenseman. At the youthful age of 22, his upside remains colossal and this past season he showed just how much talent he has. He finished with 56 points, eight goals via the power play and had a plus six rating. The kid is a dangler with end to end skating ability that can only be described as, “did that really just happen.” Green will play one of the points on the top-power play unit and could possibly pull double shifts. The dynamic blue liner has the potential to reach 70 points this season.

2007-08

Green, an offensive defenseman handed a golden opportunity to skate major minutes with the big club in 2006-07, fizzled a bit with only 12 points in 70 games to go along with a minus-10 rating. At only 22, the swift-skating defensman's future is still bright, and he does have 85 points in 108 career games at AHL Hershey on his resume. But with the Capitals bringing in Milan Jurcina, Tom Poti and John Erskine, he'll have to fight for one of the last spots on the Caps' blue line, and if he has an unimpressive camp, he could wind up at Hershey for a large part of the 2007-08 season. Still, he's a name to consider in keeper leagues.

2006-07

The Capitals are really high on Green, as evidenced by their allowing the 20-year-old blueliner to play in 22 games with the club in 2005-06. The smooth-skating, puck-moving Green showed flashes of potential, but mostly looked overmatched in only tallying three points, picking up 18 penalty minutes and accruing a minus-8 rating. Green shone in the minors, however, finishing second among AHL Hershey defensemen with 43 points in only 56 games in the regular season and finishing 11th among skaters in the entire league with 18 points in 21 playoff games. While adept in the offensive third, Green has to work on his defense, and will likely split time between Washington and Hershey again this season.

2005-06

Green, an offensive defenseman, impressed during the 2005-06 training camp and could be a big part of the Caps' future. He'll only turn 20 during the season, however, so Green will have to impress for a year or two in the minors before being given an opportunity to make it up to the big club.
