But he is also probably one of the most overrated Rangers on the current roster. All you have to do is analyze how hes played without a rock like Staal by his side over the last couple of seasons. Whenever they are seperated, Girardi goes from being very good to very average.

You can play him on the top pair because he works well with Staal as a shutdown pair, but that doesnt make him a "top pair defenseman" in the traditional sense.
Ok but why trade him if he is amazing with Staal. He can be as average as he wants without Staal, but since he is a great player with Staal, there is no reason to want to trade him.
