He's a little greene


This picture of Matt Greene was taken a year ago. He is addressing fans at the University of North Dakota, thanking them for their support of their hockey team, which he captained.

I'll be the first to admit that I've given Greene some flak but its time to give him a little bit of praise too.

He had only 27 games of NHL experience this season and has been pressed into duty on our third pairing. On the road he and Bergeron have not been spared any tough matchups, although MacT has sheltered them at home.

It gets chaotic at times when they are out there and Greene has ended up in the box more often then I'm sure he would like.

But give him a little credit. He's doing his part. He's even on the plus/minus ledger despite having to face some pretty tough opposition at times.

Given that in a year he has gone from being a university student to contributing to this Oilers' run, well I'd say that's better then alright.

Good for him!

Aw, you should never be ashamed for being too hard on a player, especially if that player makes you nervous when he's on the ice.

On my deathbed will I come clean about players I've unfairly judged (note: all of them).

He looks like a young version of the principal on Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

And I'm a Matt Greene fan.

Crazy SOB.
