Mike Green is the "Real Deal"
Mike Green is the real deal, and don't let anybody tell you otherwise.
His overtime goal in yesterday's game was his third game-winner of the season and 15th goal overall (leading all defensemen). He logs more and more ice time each night, sometimes over half the game.
Mike Green deserves to be seriously considered for the Norris Trophy this year, but it seems few others are giving him the credit he truly deserves.
Caps owner Ted Leonsis actually had a neat stat on his blog today--Mike Green has scored as many goals as Jaromir Jagr so far this season.
Let it be known throughout the land!
Mike Green shall now be referred to as Mike "Real Deal" Green!
My friend Matt was the first person I heard apply that nickname, and I like it. Perhaps now the doubters will be forced to give him more credit.
