pretty safe bet that gionta is staying put now...

which is fine, especially if MT/MB use the incoming of Ryder to justify pulling back Gionta's PP time.

Gionta, for his shortcomings on offense, is not at all out of place in his ES minutes. He's playing solid, responsible hockey and still leads by example in terms of effort/attitude. As long as he doesn't sulk when/if his PP time gets cut, he's a positive overall to the team.

His contract sucks, but getting rid of cole's 4.5M$ makes it a lot more manageable for this year & next.

just needs to stay healthy now.
