Sure he's way overpaid for a defensive specialist, but he is still an integral part of the team defensive game. There would be a huge hole with him gone right now without an adequate replacement.

I expect to get attacked, but I stand by what I said. I have no problem with Gionta's game right now.
When analysing Gionta’s play, people often overlook the bolded part. Seriously, who, right now, can play against the same level of competition than him? As I already mentioned, maybe Eller but that’s it. Gallagher first needs to learn how to protect himself.

Plus, he will give you 20-30 goals.
