It's not really him. They didn't look bad in Edmonton, just fell victim to some really bad calls. They gave up some soft ones last night, but that was as much the goalies as the D. Green is ok defensively, but not great. I just know Collins was standing still watching the play a couple times last night. The problem is they need to limit how much he's on the ice and give his ice time to someone else, but they don't want to penalize whoever his partner is that way (Hamrlik/Schultz)
Missing Green does hurt, but you are right that the bigger problem is having to run Collins out there. Hopefully Erskine can get back into action soon as he would be a much better option than Collins.
