As Katie reported, Mike Green was on the ice at practice again today. He's still recovering from what certainly appears to be a concussion, though the Capitals management isn't saying so specifically.

Judging from the comments on Neil Greenberg's statistical analysis post this morning on the (lack) of offensive production by the Caps' defense, opinion is decidedly -- and perhaps surprisingly -- mixed on Green's value to the team.

Katie will have a story on Green for tomorrow's dead-tree edition, but it's worth pondering: Can the Capitals make a run in the playoffs without him?
