Girardi has put in a lot of gutty performances over the last couple years for us. I think it's ****ing impressive. His time on ice--the blocked shots and hits. He plays a physical game but he hardly ever takes a penalty. That needs repeating 'he plays a physical game and he hardly ever takes a penalty.'--and a lot of people don't understand how valuable that is to a team. And he has some offense besides. Absolutely ****ing dependable--game in game out. To me he's almost like a poor man's Nicklas Lidstrom--in that he doesn't quite have that talent but he has a motor that can go all night long, he's sound positionally and he doesn't put you in man down situations. Smart player.
