The Detroit News’s Ted Kulfan updates Mike Green’s status ahead of tomorrow night’s game against Buffalo:
Defenseman Mike Green (upper body) remains a question mark for Thursday’s game against Buffalo.“I’ll know that answer (Thursday),” [coach Jeff] Blashill said of Green’s availability.Green is the most likely Red Wings player to be dealt before Monday’s deadline. He’s a potential unrestricted free agent July 1, and has several teams extremely interested in him as a rental acquisition.
Blashill feels there’s no extra concern about playing, or not playing, Green with the deadline days away.
“Not for me, not for him,” Blashill said. “We’re in a business of trying to win hockey games, he’s in business to be the best player he can be, so for me and him the focus is 100 percent on winning a game against Buffalo.”
