Well, he came in and even made an impact before Giroux. One thing Nodl always had was a competitiveness that kept him involved. That's how he made the team right out of his first camp.

He was defensively sound enough to stay up in the NHL, so when he was sent back to the minors he worked on the drawbacks in his game. That's when he became so defensively responsible.

Unfortunately, his offense never manifesto, so it's a very good thing he worked on his defensive game.
