I don't understand what is misleading. Do you think that Girardi's stats aren't impressive because he played in 30-something NHL games already? If we're purely looking at stats, then I think Girardi's first pro season was a home run. 10 goals? Not bad. An even rating for a guy going against top lines on a team that struggled at times to score at even strength? Not bad either. If you look at 2008 alone he was a +9, so the trend is positive. Then in the playoffs he was +1 going against top lines in 10 games compared to -4 last season in 10 games not going against top lines. I think those are exactly the types of stats you'd like to see from a 24 year old defenseman who had 30-something NHL games (plus playoff games) under his belt.
