Free Mike Green!

Posted January 31, 2010

These youngsters echo the sentiments of many Capitals fans on this Sunday afternoon. Mike Green has been suspended 3 games for an elbow to Michael Frolik. While the hit was certainly illegal, and its tough to argue against the suspension, 3 games seems a bit excessive. Green will be available to return on Friday against Atlanta, and presumably will conveniently be in the lineup against Pittsburgh a week from today. That makes us wonder if this infraction had occurred a few games later, if the league would have looked the other way to preserve their nationally televised marque matchup on Super Bowl Sunday. The posters were created at the Caps Kid’s Club Spirit Station (photo after jump), as today was a Kid’s Club Day at Verizon Center.
