While trade rumors around Mike Green continue to swirl, a look at history tells us that trading someone like him may not yield as much as some people might hope. In these dog days of summer, when we are tired of thinking about where the Washington Capitals will host the Winter Classic next January, and the buffet of unrestricted free agents is pretty much picked over, thoughts turn to the wild and the wacky.

Caps Insider: After free agency splash, Capitals hope to help get Mike Green ‘back on track’

The speculation had frothed since the season ended, wondering whether Mike Green would remain part of his team’s plans, no louder than after the Capitals left free agency with $69 million committed to two new defensemen.
