Well, potential to be better I think...Girardi has many years on McDonagh and has just settled down into being the consistent, steady defenseman that he is. It took him years to get to that point.

McDonagh isn't as consistent yet, he's still figuring out what he can do at the NHL level, but he's shown a higher upside in almost every area of the ice

He's not quite there to being better all around than Girardi, and I'm sure he's benefiting a great deal from playing with such a steady and solid defenseman, but he has tons of time to continue getting better. It's pretty exciting
