Something I've never seen mentioned here is maybe this shot blocking system is taking years off of guys careers. Dan Girardi is regularly destroyed around here. Believe it or not, this guy has been a Ranger for seven years, and he just turned 29. All in all, he's been usually reliable and pretty decent puck mover. His first year, he scored 10 goals.
He's not old by any stretch, yet it seems like he's slowing down just a bit, and he certainly isn't moving or controlling the puck like he has in the past. Is all that shot blocking and taking a beating taking its toll on a guy like Girardi?
What about Cally? Seems like the same thing.
How many years off a career is this diving in front of pucks strategy going to take?
