Johnson was given a very offensive role (lots of PP time and middling/sheltered minutes at evens), Girardi was used as a shutdown defenseman (low PP minutes toughest matchups possible). When you think of their role and production it really makes it hilarious for anybody to even suggest at the current moment they are anywhere close.
Yeah but you forget, the Rangers aren't allowed to have 2-way defensemen according to HF.
McDonagh and Girardi are both black holes offensively who can't skate, can't shoot, can't pass, and have no hands. Matter of fact they can barely hold a stick. They are so unskilled in fact that they may be considered imbeciles by the dictionary definition. Hockey skills? They don't even have motor skills.
All these guys know how to do is smash forwards with their powerful fists and eat raw meat. Tortorella has to keep a shock color on them at all times to prevent them from eating Ryan Callahan. There's still room for development though. Rumor has it we're trying to teach McDonagh how to speak. And Girardi has made great strides in potty training.
But even if they end up being monkeys their whole careers, they're still great shutdown D-men who are black holes offensively. Which is what they are now, just ask HFBoards.
