The Gaborik thing was unacceptable any way you look at it. I don't care if Carcillo is at fault, or Gabby for dropping his gloves. You just can't let anyone, let alone a complete scum bag like Carcillo do that to your star player.
It just can't happen. I don't hold grudges though, but that is something that bothered me at the time.
As far as his play goes, I've always thought he was undervalued. But again, he's like Rozsival in the sense where when he's bad it's painfully obvious and that's what the novice sees.
Rozsival's mistakes are so obvious my mother could point them out, and she doesn't even know what hockey is.
Girardi's play tends to go into stretches, and he has had some brutal ones.
Like most on this roster, I think he's solid and a good player to have, it's just unfortunate we have to ask these guys to play above their talent level most times.
