For Capitals, fitting into cap might be offseason’s biggest challenge

Twelve summers ago, defenseman Mike Green, then still a teenager and not yet eligible for selection, attended the 2003 NHL draft in Nashville at the behest of his agent. Green recalled celebrating with the Washington Capitals’ first-round pick, a forward he had faced in junior hockey and with whom he shared an agent, a man he came to know as both a teammate and a longtime friend. And one year later, the Capitals chose Green with the 29th overall pick, reuniting him in Washington with Eric Fehr .Read full article >>

Caps Insider: Mike Green on uncertain future with Capitals: ‘We’ll see what happens’

The prospect of leaving the Washington Capitals had already “scared the [heck]” out of defenseman Mike Green even before the postseason reached its disappointing conclusion, so of course the feeling had not yet dissipated when he arrived to address reporters one last time.

Mike Green settling in again with Capitals, just as it may be time to go

Mike Green had no desire to discuss the future, because the future might take him away from here. He did not want to consider life beyond this season — whenever the Washington Capitals’ playoff run ends, the defenseman’s contract expires and he enters unrestricted free agency. Sitting at his locker stall in a private moment Monday, inside the practice facility that became his office a decade ago, he tapped his foot and fiddled with his stick.
