yeah, "best defensive defensemen in the league?" hyperbole much? sure he leads in certain categories but give me Chara over Girardi by a country mile. I still think Sather is crazy to pony up $6.5M for Redden but think Chara is not worth the $7.5M that he got from Boston. $7.5M was definitely expensive but Chara >>>>>>> Redden, and I'm talking about the summer he went UFA and Ottawa decided to extend Redden over him. Today, I'd need the entire front page of the NYT to fill all the > marks.

Staal >>> Girardi as well so I didn't really have to go so far off the farm to find a better defensive d. :p
