Andy Greene appreciation thread

65 posts in this topic

Andy tonight : 28:26 TOI with 4 shots and a goal. yes he was -1 but what do you expect when he plays pretty much half the freaking game and against the other team's top line.

 

Also with fear of knocking us off topic ITT, I liked Volchenkov's play tonight but I wouldn't dare make an appreciation thread for him for fear of being crusified on this board. But for a 5th/6th defenseman and PK specialist he is very solid.

His goal was sweet.  That pass by Zajac for that backdoor play was insane.

If only he was getting paid like one, no one would care.

Greene's like Elias, in that he's incredibly, incredibly underrated.  Devils players tend to do that, it seems..if he played in a big market I be he'd be nominated.

 

Jack Johnson is embarrassingly awful...can't believe he'll be considered.

Wish Andy was the Captain for this team. Our best defenseman and the perfect mentor for all of our young defenseman.

We need to get him locked up.  After next year, I'd give him a 4 year $24M extension.

Because the people who run Team USA are morons.  Greene should at least be in consideration.  Instead they will take Jack Johnson.

 

Team USA should take into consideration these 10 guys:  Suter, Byfuglien, Shattenkirk, Yandle, McDonagh, Martin, Carlson, Faulk, Greene, ... and the 10th guy I don't know, really, it gets kind of murky there.  Erik Johnson?  Tom Gilbert?  Jeff Petry?  Brooks Orpik?  Not a ton of options after those first 9, and I know Martin's hurt, but yeah.

 

I think Fowler should be included on the list. Even though he's canadian, he plays for the us national team

I had no idea he was producing so many points. I hadn't looked at stats in a while but to see her is top 20 in the league and has more points than Chara and the same as Weber is incredible. Good work Andy.

I know he's looking fantastic this year, but I think that's a bit of an overpayment. I'd say more like 4/18-5/25. It'd be a nice raise for Greene, going from $3M per to $4.5-5M and will take him to age 35-36. While I think he's good, I don't think we should pay him like he'll continue to score at a .5ppg rate over that deal when the only time he's come close to that was 09-10 when he put up 37 points. Now if he puts up almost 40 points this year and does it again next year, maybe, but I'll be very surprised if that happens.

Back in the day I remember thinking 3m per was a steep investment for Greene. He's earned every penny and probably deserves more.

I remember saying eh, $2.5M would have been better. Now, I think it could have been $4M per and it still would be a bargain.
