Let's not forget the cap is going up. The contracts that comparable players signed years ago aren't 1:1 comparisons of how reasonable any deal will be next year or in the following years.

I think that'd be absolutely idiotic to trade Girardi and/or Callahan short of a huge return. What's the point of developing your own guys only to trade them at their peaks? Yeah, a team needs some elite players, and yeah, a team needs guys playing over their contracts, but not everyone has to be elite and not everyone needs to play over their pay. You can have a few glue guys who are slightly overpaid for their on ice contributions if they're important to the team. I think both of those guys have more than earned to stay Rangers forever if they choose to get paid something reasonable.
