Take away Stralman's Girardi hurt minutes this year, and it is closer to 13 a game. Now, compare that with the normal number of minutes we give our third line center, and I think its a strong counter argument.

I was the one who brought up the question of whether people would trade MDZ for ROR before it was even initially rumored. There was a generally negative response. This has changed, for some reason.
