He was one of their best players by the end of the regular season and was definitively their best player in the playoffs. My favorite thing about him, though, is his attitude. Just no quit.

This post-playoff interview about sums it up for me:
Interviewer (paraphrased because I don't remember how exactly the question was worded): You had 3 goals in the series. Do you feel like individually you had a good playoff?
Girgensons: No. We lost.
I was always skeptical of him because I knew he was a rock on defense but I was scared that his offense wouldnt translate. He seems to have quite the complete package. Sounds like a 2nd line center for years to come if he develops like he should.
