If thats true then why trade him for a redundate peice in MPS when krieder will be him in the nhl next year?

Could you image having a young D-Core of Staal, Mcdonagh, Erixon - all being top pairing dmen, with guys like McIlrath, Sauer and MDZ being added to them.. That would then make Girardi expendable in a year or two, where he will be turning 29. We can then deal Girardi with some other peices for a major upgrade on offense.

Im just not cool with getting rid of one of the best young defenders we have had since Marc Staal. I believe Erixon and Mcdonagh will challenge Staal eventually.
