Galiardi has the potential to be a Ryan Kesler/Mike Richards type player, but he doesn't quite have the heart that McGinn does. Regardless, this trade can not simply be judged right now. We're going to have to wait a few years to see.
I don't think its heart because TJ showed that in spades against the Sharks in the playoffs...it seems to be confidence. He needs to get stronger physically too. McGinn is what he is and hes gone so its time to move on.
