Girardi is the top shot-blocking defensemen in the entire NHL... As long as he's playing for us with a moderately priced cap hit, he's not expendable. If he started asking for or making $5 mil a season, I might change my opinion. But right now we're getting excellent value from Girardi's contract and that's absolutely key to staying competitive with the salary cap because it allows us to commit those saved cap dollars to filling out other areas of our roster.
