Matt Greene not buying what Colin Fraser is selling

Greene Matt Kings camp 2013

Earlier today we posted comments from Colin Fraser, where he intimated he would get the better of Matt Greene in a good ‘ol hockey scrap. Ever the opportunist, we felt it only fair that Greene be given a shot at a rebuttal.
