I do think Girardi's importance on this team has been a bit overblown. But he's got good size and strength, is an average skating defenseman, and plays a physical game without taking a penalty every other shift.

I'd like to see him play a bit more abrasive vs top units at even strength, and for Torts to allow him to be a stay-at-home guy, focusing on his play on our side of the red line. I don't think he's necessarily better or worse than most other players playing his role and ice-time around the league.
