He redeemed himself in my eyes by defending a teammate the following season, but I still had a major problem with the mistake he made (and admitted he made a mistake) in the Gabby/Carcillo situation.

Since that season of redemption, he has been as good as Staal and has been a MAJOR contributing factor in McDonagh's growth as a defenceman.

He's been playing like that 15 year grizzled vet that alot of teams have as they navigate deep into the PO's.

Dan Girardi is a guy that has forced me to eat alot of crow.
gaborik shouldn't have been stupid enough to drop the gloves. girardi was okay on that. yeah he could've gotten involved and taken a penalty, but gaborik should not have dropped the gloves with that man. i give gabby credit for taking the beating.
