It is TIME TO TRADE GIRARDI while you can get GOOD VALUE IN RETURN. It is one of those moves that are hard to make, but for Cap Reasons and for the betterment of the team. Trade him to Edmonton for couple of forwards. But it must be done now before he starts breaking down.

Don't get me wrong, I like G for the most part......but you have to make shrewd moves to keep your team competitive, or better. Now is that time......move Girardi in the off-season
The guy is regularly matched up against some of the best players in the world and has done exceedingly well at shutting them down. Nobody was complaining when he and McDonagh were shutting down AO & company, and now that he has one bad game the bashing has started again.

He's not the fastest skater, or most offensively talented, but people seriously underestimate just how important he is to this defense. RH, shutdown defenders aren't exactly growing on trees. Especially ones who can eat up 25 minutes or more per night against some of the best players in the world.
