For the sub- 5'10 players, he's the least easily replaced after Gallagher though. What people have to realize is that if you want to set up the young'uns for the sweet scoring time you've got to have someone pushing on those defensive minutes. You can't just insert some a mediocrity in Gionta's place and not be less effective.

They are already down one top six winger, addition is required more than subtraction in this area.

The competitive window is when the team's best talent is cheap, that's coming fast. A 2nd round pick doesn't help much.
