I'm not really a true believer in those stats but nice to see Staal get some deserved credit. He isn't a very flashy player he doesn't have those big open ice hits or has a rocket of a shot so he doesn't get the attention like some other defensemen in the league get. But he is very good defensive dman especially when you consider how young he still is. He is 23 years old and basically carrying the defense unit.
Girardi isn't as bad as people make him out to be. He has played really well since the last game against Philly. He is good in blocking shots and he does hit he is a solid number 4 type defensemen. The one thing you want to see from him is play with a little bit more snarl around the crease.
