There was a time when Girardi had lost something though. Back in Gabs' 1st year here. The turning point for him in my opinion though was after Carcillo beat the crap outta Gaborik, and Girardi stood there and didn't intervene. You could tell in his post game interview that it bothered him, a lot. And I think he has more then redeemed himself. Both in terms of his game, and sticking up for his teammates.
Girardi v. Hartnell comes to mind.
