LA Kings Insider has learned that the Los Angeles Kings and defenseman Matt Greene have agreed upon a four-year contract extension. At this point, the new contract has not been signed, but the team is optimistic that it will be signed sooner rather than later.
Big Matt Greene fan. Love him. And I don’t get this at all.
38 games this past season. 5 the season before. Not just injuries but serious ones. His back.
I have three explanations:
First, Greene is fine. His health is not a concern at all. Fully recovered and ready to be the two-ton, menacing diesel truck with whom we have fallen in love. I am rotting for “first.” Remember Greene is only 31 years old so this would be ideal.
Second, Greener isn’t as beaten up as we think, Dean knows Willie Mitchell is not re-signing and McNabb’s basket remains unoccupied with eggs. The thought of Robyn Regehr and ____ is not cool. This seems the most logical.
Third, Jon Rosen is stoned. Wait, no, that’s not it. Third, we are talking about a very low cap hit, like 4 years, $8 to $10M so it’s low risk, high reward if Matt Greene can stay healthy.
What is this insanity?
