The same way they wanted McDonagh.

People saw him as a throw in. Sather/Gorton saw him as the diamond in the rough.
Exactly this. I will continue to second-guess their forward picks, but when it comes to defensemen, this organization knows their ****. Staal. Girardi. Tyutin. Sanguinetti (playing NHL time in Carolina). McDonagh. Moore. Bickel (yes, he counts). MDZ.

Torts is terrified of a SHG against. Always coaching not to lose. I can't believe he made the change.
Girardi gets a lot of crap but he actually controls the puck pretty well on the back-end. He also has a good, hard, low shot. The problem is that with the lack of movement from everyone else, he rarely is able to see the net through the defender standing right in front of him.
