It feels like it’s time to break up the nucleus, to shake up a roster with just three players not under contract for next season. It can only happen through a substantial trade, and that is why it is time for Mike Green to go.
Provocative! Russian Machine has the rebuttal:
Trading Green will solve exactly none of [the team's myriad] problems. It will just introduce more.
For the final word, my spirit leader for all things Caps, @japersrink:
Also, it's pretty easy to say, "Trade this player." But maybe the focus should be not on the player, but on the guy doing the trading.
