He's a minute-eater, yes absolutely. A #2? No. Being able to physically be on the ice for 20+ minutes a game does not equate to you actually being effective and making good decisions for those 20+ minutes. Girardi is easily our most overrated defenseman and will likely reel in the biggest return aside from Staal/McDonagh. Get a real #2, one who can actually play defense (and hey, maybe some offense since our blueline has absolutely none this season) and go from there.
I guess the people who voted him in the all star game were all dumb.
And you are smarter than the people who voted him as the 6th best dman in the NHL last season.
The guy blocks shots and plays great defense. He has been playing at less than 100% with nicks and bruises this year and you jump him.
Says a lot more about you than about Girardi.
