A defensive defenseman who munches minutes, rarely makes mistakes, blocks everything, makes smart first passes all the damn time, puts up 25-30 points a year and has a penchant for clutch play and raising his game when the stakes go up (3-9-12 in 20 in the playoffs, including a pair of insanely clutch goals)

Oh, right, and he's made of ****ing adamantium. He takes PK Subban slapshots to the ankle and misses 3 shifts. He'll play 30 minutes a night and ****ing laugh at the bench. He's honestly more deserving of the C than Ryan Callahan is based on work ethic, leadership and warrior intangibles alone.

But yeah, average and expendable. Go hivemind!

This year has been a different story for Girardi, not his best year (then again it has been a so-so year for the entire team sans Lundqvist) and most people won't look past a 42 game sample size vs his entire career as a guy who can play 30+ minutes a game, is in every sense of the word a shut down defenseman and is made of steel.

He will never been an offensive guy. You want a guy who can play tons of minutes against the top tier talent in the league and do a great job of shutting them down? Danny G is the guy. If you want a two way defenseman who will also score 25-30 points... he is not your guy.
Yup I agree 110%. Girardi is my fav D. Again I say he goes no where. Staal to me is over rated and not needed. He can bring a lot back,I say move him
