I like Gionta, I am glad he has picked up his game recently (he had 4 goals and 5 assist through January and February but has 6 goals and 4 assist in March). The 5 million price tag is quite heavy for his offensive production. However like you said, we don't know what the intangibles are in the dressing room. Having 3 players under 5'10" in our top 3 does leave us vulnerable, and it's clear that he will be the odd man out as the two others are much younger than him.
