I know it is still early in the season but you have to like what is happening on this team. Many players are stepping up. This is a very good defense even without Staal. The goaltending is very good also and the offense is starting to come around.
Both McD and MDZ have stepped up big time this year, and Girardi is in beast mode. Has made the loss of Staal easier on the team. Just think how set the D would be if he was in the lineup...
