I'm not interested in paying a mediocre ES player an upwards of $6M per.

Girardi, on the other hand, is not likely to be replaced by anyone in the system. There's McIlrath, but I think he takes Stralman's spot more than anything. He's right handed, decently productive for a very good defensive player, and, unlike Callahan, is both a warrior and durable.

I realize my opinions of Callahan aren't very common from a Rangers fan, it's just how I feel. I think his actual capabilities as a player are massively overstated.
If any of Fast, Hrivik, or Kristo twice produce a 29 goal pace at the NHL level I'll shave my legs.
