Also, Girardi was coming up for a new contract and these people didn't want to pay him what he was worth. Now a year later, Girardi is coming off his best season as a Ranger and most people now realize that his contract is a bargain.
There are still plenty of people though that throw him into every trade proposal, even though we can't afford to trade him. Just as there are still people who hold a grudge against Dubinsky for his holdout 2 years ago.
Absolutely agree re: the Carcillo thing skewing so many fans' attitude on him. In fact, that thread was made less than 2 weeks after the Gabby/Carcillo incident.
