Not worth a four year deal

I don't see the need to sign him to a long term contract. he is a marginal top 4 defenseman on a bad defensive team. Those kind of players are available for short term rentals and of better quality. With our cap we need flexibility and the last thing we need is another overpriced defenseman taking up room. Is anybody actually excited by the idea of having Girardi on the ice? As for the "incident" let's not pretend its a selling point by the thought "he learned from it never to do it again" he was never the most stand-up guy before and his first instinct was to do nothing. You dont unlearn that, its just who he is. Not the meekest of players but just not quite mean enough. We've had/have lot's of players like that, teams of them. Its time we stopped collecting them.
