Girardi is UFA one season before that.

but no way is their talent level near top in the league. And it's silly to say "well if we only had Chara or Weber or Letang, one of those guys would give us the top defensive corp in the league!"
Yean and if we only had Crosby and Ovechkin, we'd have the best offensive team in the league as well.
Not really. It's the same as saying "if we added a nice piece we'd be the best in the league," which signifies right now we're near the top.

I really don't think there's many d-corps better than ours. The age means that this current group has a ton of time to grow and advance while they're already great.
