And there certainly arent many, if any at all, who are going to be available around the trade deadline who will be able to replace all of what girardi has to offer, both on the ice and off in terms of salary and age.
I'd move him for the right deal, but it'd have to be a very good one at this point
A move for the sake of a move is rarely productive.
(I still get nightmares from the Ratelle/Park - Esposito/Vadnais, etc. deal.)
By all means, keep DG, unless the premium in return is enough of a profit to be an upgrade, directly or indirectly, short term or long term.
But if that IS the case, don't hesitate to pull the trigger. That's my point.
