Lets look at reality. He is 33 years old and before his injury, he had 15 points (8 goals) in 31 games and was a -7. Add to that his size......5'7", 173 pounds.

He is not what this team needs now. An aging (yes, hard working with a great attitude) forward who is undersized and his scoring touch has diminished.

Time to thank Gionta for all that he did here and move on. No hate involved at all. Its business and this team needs to progress, not hang on in the hope that Gionta rebounds. And as far as leadership, Cole can take that role.
So because his production is down a bit over 30 games where he was out of the lineup twice and suddenly "his scoring touch has diminished"?

Funny how you twist the facts to match your argument.
