People are silly
I think the OP was asking WHY Girardi is considered a 3/4 when he statistically outproduced our stud, future #1. There are plenty of reasons, but way to go in not even bothering to address any of them.

Staal hasn't approached his potential. Girardi looks to have maxed out or come close. Staal plays against top lines, Girardi generally doesn't (or not as much). Girardi spent 3 seasons playing professional hockey before last season, whereas Staal had played none.
