Very glad someone else thinks the same way and has seen his play for what it has been for a while - consistently and generally awful (unless paired with McD/Staal of course, then they cover his ass constantly and Girardi somehow got a pass for ****ing up in the first place), and littered with terrible puck movement decisions.

Girardi has been the direct result - for a while now - of why the Rangers get hemmed in their own zone because if even the slightest amount of pressure is imposed on him, his first instinct is to just throw the puck away. Which is usually an aimless throw-away in the defensive zone which results in a turn over 9 times out of 10 which results in 2 minute shifts for players. And sometimes we wonder why we can't get our offense going? We have trouble getting out of our own zone when there's no one within 30 feet.

Also, PLEASE no more Girardi-MDZ pairing. It's just beyond abysmal.
